A Fraction is a part of a whole or a unit, for eg. A piece of a whole cake (1⁄2 of 1 cake). A simple fraction consists of two parts, a Numerator and a Denominator.
We often talk of dividing as being the reverse of multiplying, and indeed when dividing fractions this is the case. The way you divide fractions is very similar to the way fractions are multiplied with a simple twist in the middle.
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.
