Countdown to Exams - Day 26 - Fractions - Addition and Subtraction
Today we extend our fraction knowledge and look at calculating with fractions. The focus here will be Addition and Subtraction of fractions. In order to carry out these calculations, the denominators of your fractions need to be the same. This means that you will have to multiply one or both of the fractions to make equivalent fractions that have the same denominator.
Remember to simplify your answers where possible to secure full marks and remember how to convert between mixed and improper fractions.
The processes required to add and subtract fractions are covered by Matt in this video.
