You can compare similar fractions by looking at their numerators. You can compare dissimilar fractions by converting them to similar fractions and looking at their numerators. You can convert a dissimilar fraction to a similar fraction by finding the least common denominator.

Their denominators. If they are the same, the fractions are similar. If they are not the same, the fractions are dissimilar.

Similar fractions have the same value. Dissimilar ones don't.

Similar fractions have the same denominator, dissimilar ones don't.

similar fraction is the same denominator and dissimilar fraction is cannot the same denominators

Equivalent fractions have the same value. 3/4 is equivalent to 6/8 Similar fractions have the same denominator. 3/5 is similar to 4/5 Dissimilar fractions have different denominators. 4/7 is dissimilar to 11/16

Well, similar means the same and dissimilar means different, so the difference is that they are different.

Finding the lowest common denominator

Convert them to decimals or Convert them to similar fractions

You have to convert them to equivalent similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first.

The answer is...Similar fractions are fractions that has the same Denominator.Example:1/6+4/6Dissimilar fractions are fractions with different Denominator.Example:6/12-9/10

Mixed fractions can be converted into improper fractions then changed back to a mixed number.

When their denominators are the same or different numbers.

3/6 and 5/6 are similar fractions. 3/6 and 4/7 are dissimilar fractions.

Two ways: convert them to decimals or convert them to similar fractions and compare the numerators.

Adding similar fractions is easy, but adding dissimilar ones requires an additional step. Before you begin, you must know a few important key terms. First, the number on the top of a fraction is called the numerator, while the number on the bottom of a fraction is called the denominator. Similar fractions have the same denominator, also called a common denominator. To add dissimilar fractions (fractions with different denominators), you must first convert the fractions so that the denominators are the same.

1. change the dissimilar fractions to similar fractions by getting the L.C.D or the least common denominator. 2. add the whole numbers and write down the given denominator. 3. reduce the answer to lowest term if possible.

For adding or substracting fractions first of all we should calculate the LCM( Lowest Common Multiplier) of the denominators in both of the fractions.

I assume you mean, with different denominators. If you want to add the fractions, subtract them, or compare them (determine which one is greater), you have to convert them to similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first. Converting to similar fractions is not necessary, and usually doesn't even help, if you want to multiply or divide fractions.

The opposite of dissimilar is similar.

Because they could be equivalent fractions as for example 3/4 is the same as 12/16

Similar means the same or alike, and dissimilar is the opposite of similar.

3/7 and 33/77 are examples of similar fractions.
