Q: How are like fractions and unlike fractions different?

Write your answer...

unlike fractions

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

Do you mean "What are unlike fractions? There must be at least 2. They are fractions with different denominators such as 3/4 and 1/2. Like fractions would be fractions like 3/4 and 1/4.

unlike fractions

You must have 2 fractions or more to have unlike fractions. They are fractions with different denominators such as 7/8 and 1/2. Like fractions would have the same denominator like 7/8 and 4/8.

Adding fractions is achieved by adding the numerators as long as the denominators are the same. When the denominators are the same the fractions are "like fractions". With different denominators they are "unlike fractions"; to be able to add them they need to be converted in to equivalent fractions with the same denominators. They are then "like fractions" and can be added.

Like fractions have the same denominators (bottom part of fraction), unlike fractions do not.

Unlike. Unlike. Unlike. Unlike.

fractions having same denominators are like fractions & others are unlike fractions

The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. Fractions like 1/3 and 1/4 have different numbers on the bottom. Those are unlike denominators.

no, to add and subtract like and unlike fractions the denominator has to be the same,

Change them to like fractions and proceed.

that they dont looks like them

like fractions,unlike fractions proper fractions ,improperfractions equivalent fractions

When adding unlike fractions, find the lowest common denominator, convert them to like fractions and proceed with the addition.

Like and unlike fractions only make sense when you have two [or more] fractions. One fraction, such as 5/12, is always like itself.

You have to find the common denominators

the fractions have different denominators

Unlike fractions have denominators that are unequal, and therefore cannot be added or subtracted. If two fractions need to be added or subtracted they must first be converted to like fractions.

What is the definition of Adding and Subtracting Like Fractions

Convert them to equivalent fractions with like denominators, then proceed.

Unlike fractions are fractions having unlikedenominators, e.g., 1/4 and 1/6.

because its just one of the rules of math :)

That simply means that the fractions have different denominators. Such fractions cannot be directly added, subtracted, or compared; you have to convert them to a common denominator first.

unlike denominators: the bottom number of a fraction. to have unlike denominators you must have two fractions with a different number on the bottom of each fraction.
