Storyboard Text

  • Hey, I can't figure out how to add and subtract fractions. I REALLY need some help. Its just homework though. 
  • Of course!! You can come to my house right now!! 
  • Let's start with adding fractions. My first problem is 4 3/8+ 3/4=? I know you ave to add, but I don't know anything else
  • First, we have to make sure that our denomators are the same. Which they are not. There is 4 and 8. You always change it to the bigger number if you can.  So, we need to change them to 8. To change it to eight you have to do 4x2. Also, you have to do the same to the top. Which is 3x2=6.
  • Yes, you would.  To add, the first thing I do is add the fractions. 3/8+6/8= 9/8 or 1 1/8. 4+1 1/8=5 1/8. The answer 5 1/8.  See, it's very easy.
  • I got it!!! Do I do 4 3/8 + 6/8?
  • Your welcome!!!! Yes, I will help you!! It is like adding. You have to change the denomanator. You will do 3x2=6. Then 2x2=4.  
  • Thank you. I get adding. Can you help me with subtracting? My problem is 2 5/6 - 2/3=?
  • Yes. 2 5/6 - 4/6= 2 1/6. The answer is 2 1/6. Finally, we are done. Now you can do the rest on your own.
  • Ok. Now do I have to subtract 2 5/6 - 4/6?
  • Thank you so much for all your help!!! Now I know how to add and subtract fractions!!!!
  • Your very welcome!! Now you can go home and do the rest of the problems by yourself. Bye!!!!!
