Yes, you must.

Before adding or subtracting two fractions they are converted into like fractions. Explain with examples why this is necessary.

If the denominators are not the same, then you have to use equivalent fractions which do have a common denominator . To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators. To add fractions with unlike denominators, rename the fractions with a common denominator. Then add and simplify.

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.
