## Math – Fractions (Study Guide)

Adding Fractions 1/4 + 2/4

=3/4 (since there is already a “common denominator,” you can simply add the numerators together: 1 +2 = 3)

1/6 + 4/6

(5/6)

7/20 + 11/20

(18/20) – Simplify 9/10

Subtracting Fractions 7/9 – 4/9

=3/9 (since there is already a “common denominator,” you can simply subtract the numerators : 7-4 = 3). Simplify if needed 3/9 = 1/3

5/7 – 2/7

(3/7)

9/12 – 5/12

(4/12) – Simplify 1/3

Simplify Fraction (Simple Form)

(Since 2 is a factor of 4 and a factor of 10, it is a common factor

of 4 and 10.) 4/10 = 2/5

of 4 and 10.) 4/10 = 2/5

2/14 in simplest form?

(1/7) Because they’re both factors of 2

(1 2/3)

7/3 as a mixed number?

Comparing Fractions ( 4/6 < 5/6)

When the denominators are the same,

you can compare the numerators.

you can compare the numerators.

Compare Fractions (5/9 > 1/2)

When denominators are different, use number since and compare each fraction to 1 on a number line or use number since (5/9 > 1/2)
