Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators Worksheets

Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators Worksheets

Adding fractions with unlike denominators involves finding a common denominator to make the fractions compatible. This can be done by identifying the least common multiple (LCM)of the two denominators, which will serve as the common denominator. Next, adjust each fraction by multiplying both its numerator and denominator by a suitable factor to convert it into an equivalent fraction with the common denominator. Once all the fractions have the same denominator, add the numerators while keeping the denominator unchanged, just as you would with any two fractions!
