How to Build and Reduce Fractions

1. How to Build and Reduce Fractions

Fractions are a fundamental part of everyday life. Fractions represent a comparison of a part to the whole. To reduce fractions, we will divide by the greatest common factor, or the GCF.

How to Find Least Common Denominators

2. How to Find Least Common Denominators

Finding a Least Common Denominator is an important tool when working with fractions. To find least common denominators, we will use multiples of our numbers.

Changing Between Improper Fraction and Mixed Number Form

3. Changing Between Improper Fraction and Mixed Number Form

Improper fractions and mixed numbers are two different types of fractions. They both have different purposes when using fractions in a problem. In this lesson, you will learn how to convert between these two different forms.

How to Add and Subtract Like Fractions and Mixed Numbers

4. How to Add and Subtract Like Fractions and Mixed Numbers

When adding and subtracting fractions, you must be sure to have a common denominator. Once you have a common denominator, you just add or subtract your numerators and then your whole numbers. Learn how in this lesson.

How to Add and Subtract Unlike Fractions and Mixed Numbers

5. How to Add and Subtract Unlike Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Simple fraction arithmetic gets a little more complicated when our denominators don't match. In this lesson, we'll learn how to add and subtract unlike fractions. Then, we'll do the same with mixed numbers.

Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers

6. Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Multiplying fractions is much more straightforward than adding, subtracting or dividing fractions. In this lesson, learn how it works. We'll also learn how to multiply mixed numbers.

Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers

7. Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Dividing fractions and mixed numbers? It sounds daunting, but it's not as tricky as it sounds. In this lesson, we'll learn how to divide fractions and mixed numbers.

How to Solve Complex Fractions

8. How to Solve Complex Fractions

Did you know fractions can nest within fractions? In this lesson, we'll learn about complex fractions and look at two different methods for solving them.

Changing Between Decimals and Fractions

9. Changing Between Decimals and Fractions

In this video lesson, you will learn about the usefulness of knowing how to change quickly between decimals and fractions. You will also learn how changing from a decimal to a fraction is different than changing from a fraction to a decimal.

Converting from Percent Notation to Decimal Notation

10. Converting from Percent Notation to Decimal Notation

Knowing how to convert a percent to a decimal can be a useful skill in many different situations. This lesson will show you how to perform that conversion and places where this skill will be helpful.

Converting Percent Notation to Fraction Notation

11. Converting Percent Notation to Fraction Notation

The process of converting percents to fractions is quite easy if you know where to start. This lesson will show you how to perform the conversion and give some real-world examples.

Changing Between Decimals and Percents

12. Changing Between Decimals and Percents

Watch as we go on a rollercoaster ride in changing from a decimal to percent and then back again. Learn to master this technique so you can get as fast as a rollercoaster going downhill on tests and quizzes when you have to convert between the two.

Converting Fractions to Percents

13. Converting Fractions to Percents

There are times when it is important to know how to convert a fraction to a percent. Fortunately, the steps to perform this conversion are not difficult. This lesson will show you those steps and give some examples.
