is a special tool which helps us to learn about the procedure followed to learn addition
of fraction numbers. Now we first define fraction numbers.
The numbers which can be expressed in the form of a / b are called fraction numbers,
where we have a and b as the whole numbers and b <> 0.
All the whole numbers are also called fraction numbers as any whole number n can
be written as n / a, which is in the form of numerator / denominator.
Let us assume that any fraction number a/b and another number 0 are added, then
we get the sum of the two fraction numbers as
a/ b + 0 = a / b
Now let us take two like fractions such that the denominators of the two fraction
numbers are equal. KnowMoreAbout:SquareAreaCalculator Tutorcircle.comPageNo.:1/4
Then we say that the sum will have the sum of the two numerators and the
denominator will remain same. So if a / b and c / b are any two fraction numbers, then
we say that the sum will be:
a/b + c / b = ( a + c ) / b
In another situation, we take the two unlike fraction numbers. In this case, we will first
convert the two unlike fraction numbers into like fraction numbers.
For this we will find the LCM of the denominators of the two given fraction numbers
and then the two fraction numbers will be converted into their equivalent form such
that the denominator of both the fraction numbers becomes equal to the LCM.
After this the problem converts into the addition of simple fraction numbers with the
same denominator. Thus we say that if we have the following fractions to be added:
3/5 + 5/4
So LCM of denominators 4 and 5 will be 20 and so we will write them in the
equivalent form by making the denominators of both the fraction numbers as 20. We
= ( 12 / 20 ) + ( 25 / 20 )
Now we will add the numerators and we will get the fraction as follows :
( 12 + 25)/ 20ReadMoreAbout:ComparingFractionsCalculator Tutorcircle.comPageNo.:2/4
= 37 / 20
This resultant fraction is improper fraction number and so we will convert the result
into improper fraction number. For this we will divide the numerator with the
denominator and get:
1 whole 17 / 20 Ans
If we are given any two mixed fraction numbers to be added, then we can solve the
given expression in two ways. First is we simply add the two whole parts of the mixed
fractions and then we will add the fraction parts of the two numbers.
On the other hand, we say that the two mixed fraction numbers can be converted
into the improper fraction numbers and then the sum of the two fraction numbers can
be added up to get the result.
Every time we need to check the resultant fraction numbers and then we will convert
it to the mixed fraction number in case the resultant fraction number is in the form of
improper fraction number and get the result. TutTu ot rcr ic rcr lc el .e c. oc mPaP geg e NoN ..::2/3 3/4
