Diamond problems are easy! The top number of the diamond is the product of the 2 numbers on the side (multiply). The number on the bottom is the sum of the 2 numbers on the side (add)

Remember when adding fractions, you need a common denominator first.

Some teachers make the problems trickier, buy only putting the bottom and 1 side number. You can get the other side number by working backwards! (The opposite of adding is subtracting)
