If the answer keys do not provide sufficient help to illustrate the concepts needed for dividing fractions, please make use of the fraction calculator. It will break down the steps in more detail and help you master fraction division in no time!
Like the other worksheet sets, these dividing fractions worksheets come in varying levels of difficulty. There are problems that are designed to exercise your cross-cancelling skills, and the answer keys on these worksheets provide detailed breakdowns of how the cross-cancelling works for each problem. Other worksheets include problems with mixed fractions (whole values).
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.
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.
