*Addition & Subtraction of fractions with like denominators*

Hi guys!

Â

Here you will find some information about adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators.

Â

There are just a few things you need to remember:

Â

Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same. If they are the same then these are called 'like denominators'

Add the top numbers (the numerators) and place the answer above the bottom number (the denominator)

Simplify if needed.

Subtracting fractions works exactly the same way, except instead of adding the numerators we subtract them instead.

Â

Here are some example practice sheets you can test yourself on. They get more challenging the further along you go :)

Â

Good luck - and remember to ask questions if you are unsure!
