Adding fractions calculatorThis adding fractions calculator will help you strengthen your skills of adding fractions. Remember the following rules when adding fractions: Rule #1: Never add denominators Rule #2: Add only the numerators Rule #3: Add the numerators only and only if the denominators are the same For example, 1/2 + 6/2 = 7/2 1/2 + 1/3 = ? You cannot add the numerators because the denominators are not the same Look for equivalent fractions to make the denominators the same before adding the numerators 1/2 + 1/3 = 3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6 If one denominator divide the other denominator, the calculator below will use the highest denominator as the common denominator. That is how I made it because it keeps your calculation simple. For example, 1/4 + 3/8 4 divide 8, so you can choose 8 as a common denominator 1/4 + 3/8 = 2/8 + 3/8 = 5/8 Also, the calculator will not reduce the answer. I am still working on a calculator that will reduce fractions.Stay tune! Fun math game: Destroy numbered balls by adding to 10
