If you have mastered adding and subtracting fractions, often multiplying fractions will seem a lot less complicated. Many of the steps feel similar, but much of the work associated with common denominators is gone. However, multiplying fractions will put your reducing skills to the test! If you need more help, the fraction calculator at the link below is a powerful tool for seeing how fraction multiplication problems work.
If the two values being subtracted are mixed fractions, it is often easier to turn them into improper fractions to perform the subtraction. This avoids any kind regrouping or borrowing from the minuend fraction if the numerator in the subtrahend is larger.
Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
When you see a fraction, you see a numerator and a denominator. To find the common factor, see whichever number among these is least: The numerator, the denominator or the difference between numerator and denominator.
