fractions here have the same denominator,

so we can add the fractions easily. You

simply add the numerators together, and

keep the common denominator in the

answer.

Carry our the addition.

case we realize that since all fractions are

really division,

is simply two divided by

2

two, which equals 1. Notice that this makes

perfect senseone-half of a pie plus onehalf of another pie equals one whole pie.

denominators must be the same. These two

fractions do not have the same denominator.

We must change one or both of the fractions

so that they have the same denominator

before we can add them.

Do this by multiplying the top and bottom of

one or both of the fractions by any number

you want in order to make the denominators

equal. Then you can just add them as

before. Remember you can always multiply

the top and bottom of a fraction by the same

number, as long as you do it to BOTH the top

and bottom.

In this case multiply the top and bottom of
