*Adding and Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators*

August 18, 2016

Ok...so we've got a handle on how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. In fact it's pretty easy right? All you need to do is add the numerators :)

Â

But what if our denominators aren't the same? What then?

Â

Well this is what we will look at next.Â

Â

Below I have provided a worked example, and some activity sheets you can test your knowledge on. They range in difficulty level so you can continue to challenge yourself as your learning progresses. Obviously we will do a lot of work in class too, but feel free to do some of your own practice too - this is what makes the difference! :)
