How to Multiply Fractions with Unlike Denominators

1. How to Multiply Fractions with Unlike Denominators

Multiplying fractions doesn't have to be difficult, even when they have unlike denominators! In this lesson, you will learn how to multiply fractions with unlike denominators as well as how to simplify your answer.

How to Divide Fractions with Unlike Denominators

2. How to Divide Fractions with Unlike Denominators

Once you know the underlying principle, diving with unlike denominators becomes easy. We'll learn how to divide fractions with unlike denominators, look at what's common between dividing fractions with like and unlike denominators, and see how they're applied in the world.

Comparing Fractions with Unlike Denominators

3. Comparing Fractions with Unlike Denominators

How can we compare fractions that don't share the same denominator? By finding a common denominator for each fraction! In this lesson, you will learn how to find the least common denominator which will then allow you to compare fractions with unlike denominators.

Adding Whole Numbers & Fractions

4. Adding Whole Numbers & Fractions

Although whole numbers and fractions do not look the same, it is still possible to add these two types of numbers together. In this lesson, you will learn how to add whole numbers and fractions.

Order of Operations with Fractions

5. Order of Operations with Fractions

Have you ever tried to put your socks on after putting on your shoes? It doesn't work does it? In math, there is also a certain order in which equations have to be solved to get the correct answer. In this lesson, you will learn this important order of operations.

How to Solve One-Step Equations with Fractions

6. How to Solve One-Step Equations with Fractions

This lesson will explain how to solve one step equations with fractions. We will define one step equations, then work with fractions to solve these types of equations, and finally look at a couple of applications involving these equations.
