How To: Add fractions with uncommon denominators

Add fractions with uncommon denominators

This video shows you how to easily add two fractions with uncommon denominators. To add the two fractions you must translate the fractions into its higher equivalent form, with a common denominator. To find a common denominator, you must find the lowest multiple that both denominators can go into. You must multiply both the numerator and the denominator by a number, so that the denominator can go into the lowest common multiple you found earlier. Then, simply add the numerators and keep the same denominator. That's it! Good luck!
