You multiply the denominator by the whole number the add the numerator and you keep the denominator the same.

Whole numbers are rational numbers with a denominator of 1. The difference with general rational numbers is that the denominators are likely to be different and they must be made the same by converting the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator before the addition can be done - by adding the numerators and keeping the denominator, and simplifying (if possible) the result. With whole numbers the denominators are already the same (as 1) and so the addition can be done straight away.

first you divide the numerator by whatever number and the denominator by the same number and that is your answer.

A whole fraction is when the numerator and denominator have the same number.

Yes. Just write it with a denominator of 1. For example, 5 is the same as 5/1.

Mixed Fractions are fractions that have whole numbers and fractions on the side.If you are trying to change them into improper fractions you take the denominator of the fraction and multiply it by the whole number and keep the same numerator. ex.: 2 and one fourth =

Like fractions are the fractions which have the same denominator and unlike fractions are the fractions which do not have the same denominator.

First, find a common denominator for the two (or more) fractions. Then, for each fraction, multiply numerator and denominator by the same number (different numbers for different fractions, though), to convert to the common denominator.

Fractions can be compared by seeing if the numerator and the denominator have the same numbers multiplied on the top and bottom.

multiply the denominator by the whole number, then add the numerator, the denominator is the same as the mixed numbers denominator

Multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same whole number.

You don't "count with fractions". Counting is done with natural numbers.

Fractions can have the same denominator, like 1/5 and 3/5. Or fractions can have different denominators, such as 1/5 and 3/8. So the whole thing can be divided in however many pieces.

A rational number is a number written in the form of one whole number over another whole number (not_zero); this is the form of a fraction. A fraction is the same as the numerator (top number) divided by the denominator (the bottom number). If the denominator is 1, then all that is left after the division is the whole number numerator, for example: 15/1 = 15 ÷ 1 = 15 All whole numbers are equivalent to fractions with a denominator of 1. All fractions are rational numbers. Thus all whole numbers are rational numbers.

Similar fractions occurs when the denominator or the bottom numbers are the same. In this case, adding similar fractions requires you to add the numerators; the top numbers together, and to keep the denominator the same. An example would be to add 2/8 and 5/8 equals 7/8.

To subtract fractions with like denominators, subtract the numerators , and write the difference over the denominator. Example : Find 45−25 . Since the denominators are the same, subtract the numerators.

Yes you have to add with the same denominator. when ever you do fractions they have to have the same denominator no matter what. So thats a yes

When those two numbers are the denominators of unlike fractions, finding the LCM (in this case, the LCD or least common denominator) and converting the unlike fractions to equivalent fractions with the same denominator will allow you to add and subtract them.

Fractions with the same denominator are referred to as fractions having a common denominator.

Adding and subtracting fractions can ONLY be done if the denominators are the same; then the calculation is done by adding or subtracting the numerators. Multiplying (and dividing) fractions does not require the denominators to be the same. To divide by a fraction the divisor is inverted (the original numerator becomes the new denominator and the original denominator becomes the new numerator) and then the fractions are multiplied. Multiplying fractions is achieved by multiplying the numerators together AND multiplying the denominators together. A whole number is the same as a fraction with the whole number as the numerator and a denominator of 1, so when multiplying by a whole number the denominator is multiplied by 1 (leaving it the same) and the is multiplication is effectively just multiplying the numerator by the whole number.

We look at the signs of numbers when we need to combine them. We subtract only if numbers have different signs, otherwise we add them. So that, if we have in an expression several positive and negative numbers, we prefer to group numbers with the same sign and add them in order to subtract just once. While with fractions we like to group fractions with the same denominator first, and after that we can combine all fractions by finding their LCD.

When multiplying fractions, the numerators (top numbers) are multiplied together and put as the numerator over the denominators (bottom numbers) multiplied together.When adding fractions, they must both have the same denominator - the fractions are made into equivalent fractions with a common denominator; then the numerators are added together and put over the same common denominator.In both cases of multiplication and addition, the resulting fractions are reduced to simplest form.

The numerator of the answer is the result of subtracting the numerators of the fractions, and the denominator of the fraction is the same as the common denominator.

You do the same way as with whole numbers.
