### 1. 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.

### 2. 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.

### 3. How to Subtract Fractions from Whole Numbers

At first glance, subtracting fractions from whole numbers might look scary, but it is relatively simple. This lesson will go through the steps required to subtract both fractions and mixed numbers from whole numbers.

### 4. 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.

### 5. 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.

### 6. Mixed Numbers: How to Add, Subtract, Multiply & Divide

In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate with fractions, a topic many students struggle with. Although considered elementary, fractions are found at all levels of mathematics, and knowing how to work with them is an important skill.

### 7. Subtracting Mixed Numbers With Regrouping

Subtracting mixed numbers requires taking the combined difference of two types of numbers. A useful method is called regrouping. This lesson shows when and how to regroup mixed numbers for subtraction.
