Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
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 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.
Reducing fractions is another skill involved in just about any of the fraction operations. The fraction worksheets on this page introduce reducing gradually by providing problems with increasingly more difficult denominators, and only gradually introducing mixed numbers and improper fractions.
