To solve a Dissimilar Fraction,you must change the denominator to a similar fraction then proceed with the Adding/Subtracting Dissimilar Fraction...
Because they could be equivalent fractions as for example 3/4 is the same as 12/16
similar fraction is the same denominator and dissimilar fraction is cannot the same denominators
Their denominators. If they are the same, the fractions are similar. If they are not the same, the fractions are dissimilar.
You have to convert them to equivalent similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first.
Similar fractions have the same value. Dissimilar ones don't.
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.
Take one of the fractions. Multiply its numerator and denominator by any integer greater than 1. The result will be a fraction with is equivalent to the fraction that you started with but no longer similar to the other fraction.
The answer depends on WHAT you want to do with them.
Simplify your answer into lowest term.Do the operation.
Two ways: Convert them to decimals and compare or convert them to equivalent fractions with a common denominator and compare the numerators.
Dissimilar fractions are not equivalent as for example 1/2 is the same as 2/4 but 3/5 and 2/7 are dissimilar fractions
Similar fractions have the same denominator, dissimilar ones don't.
A dissimilar fraction is a fraction where the denominator is not the same as the others .
3/6 and 5/6 are similar fractions. 3/6 and 4/7 are dissimilar fractions.
A proper fraction is one fraction in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator. Dissimilar fractions are two or more fractions whose denominators are different (dissimilar).
Similar means the same or alike, and dissimilar is the opposite of similar.
-74/2 is an equivalent fraction.
They are fractions that are not equivalent such as 1/2, 2/3, 7/8, 4/5 ..... etc
The opposite of dissimilar is similar.
Two fractions are said to be dissimilar if their denominators are different.
Equivalent fractions have similar values
Find the least common denominator and convert each fraction to its equivalent. Example: 2/3 and 3/4 The least common denominator of 3 and 4 is 12. 2/3 = 8/12 3/4 = 9/12
Unlike or dissimilar fraction.
