well for starters you have to find the least common deminator, here's an example.

2/3  +  1/4    = ?  

here the least common deminator is 12.

12 goes into 3 4 times,  4 x 2 =8

12 goes into 4 3 times, 3x 1 = 3

8/12 +   3/12 =  now you just add normally,   11/12

You need to get the denominators (the numbers on the bottom) the same. Eg. 

2/3 + 1/5 
I'd I can convert both to be the same type of fractions the sum is easy. By making them 15ths (by multiplying the denominators) this will work. 

I need to convert 2/3 into 15ths - simply multiply top and bottom by 5 

2/3 = 10/15 

I now need to convert 1/5 into 15ths by multiplying top and bottom by 3 

1/5 = 3/15 

my sum is now 10/15 + 3/15 = 13/15

Find the LCD (Least Common Denaminator) then the LCD will be your deminator devide the LCD and the denaminator of the fraction then multiply the numerator

 

EX.

       2/3 - 3/4 =  8/12  9/12 = 1/12

 

 

 

 

 

 

                   hope it help        actualy im an asian kid :p grade four 10 years old.
