### Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominator

1/2 + 1/3=?

This is just like adding to fruits together
1 apple+ 1 orange= 2 fruits

To answer the question on top of the page we must find Common Denominator!

A multiple of the denominators of a set of Fractions.

Example: A common denominator for 1/4 and 1/6 is 12 because a common multiple of 4 and 6 is 12.

4- 4,8,12,16

6- 6,12,18,24

1/2 + 1/3

X2
3/6 + 2/6

You can also Cross Multiply!

1 - 4
_ X_ They should all be equal together
3 - 12

_ X_ They should all be equal together
3 - 12
I didn't really get it. Other than that, excellent post!
