Fraction is FUN when you know some thumb rules!

It is easier to handle the equation when the denominators are the same.

Example:

1 | + | 1 |

3 | 6 |

The bottom numbers are different. See how the slices are different sizes?

^{1}/_{3} | + | ^{1}/_{6} | = | ? | ||

Now the fractions have the same bottom number ("6"), and our question looks like this:

Now that the denominator is the same, we can add the portions together!

^{2}/_{6} | + | ^{1}/_{6} | = | ^{3}/_{6} | ||

Do simplify the fraction when you are done with the equation:

3 | = | 1 |

6 | 2 |

In picture form the whole answer looks like this:

^{2}/_{6} | + | ^{1}/_{6} | = | ^{3}/_{6} | = | ^{1}/_{2} |

So now
