When adding fractions without a common denominator, it is necessary to find a common denominator before adding the numerators. Find two equivalent fractions by determining the least common multiple of the two denominators and using that as the denominator for both fractions.

The last set of worksheets deals with commonly encountered fractions, including percentage values. These are values that students should be able to site reduce when they encounter them. Mastering these reducing problems will make many other fraction problems go much faster.

Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.

Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions. Most of the work involves the denominator. If the denominators of the two fractions are already the same, much of the work is done. Simply subtract the two numerators to get the answer fraction using the same denominator, and then reduce and make a proper fraction.
