Finding your common denominator
Hello! My name is Mrs. Emma, and I am going to teach you how to add fractions
When you multiply the denominator by one number then the numerator needs to be multiplied by that same number
The numerator is the number above the line.
Adding the fractions
Some people may think adding fractions is difficult thing to do but as you can see it's really not!
Just think of regular addition!
The first thing you need to do when you are adding fractions is find a common denominator. That means make both the numbers under the line the same. In order to do that, you need to multiply your denominator in one of the fractions to get the same denominator as the other fraction. If you look at the classroom then would see the example if you were doing 2/6 + 2/3.
When you are adding fractions you only add the numerator. The denominator stays the same. When you add the numerators you are just doing basic addition.
When you get your answer , if your numerator is greater than your denominator you need to make it a whole number. Look in the classroom for the example.
