How to Build and Reduce Fractions

3. 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

4. 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.

Comparing and Ordering Fractions

5. Comparing and Ordering Fractions

Comparing and ordering fractions is way to examine fractions that contain different-sized sets. In order to compare these fractions, you must find a common denominator and make equivalent fractions.

Changing Between Improper Fraction and Mixed Number Form

6. 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

7. 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

8. 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

9. 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
