Their denominators. If they are the same, the fractions are similar. If they are not the same, the fractions are dissimilar.
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.
similar fraction is the same denominator and dissimilar fraction is cannot the same denominators
Similar fractions have the same value. Dissimilar ones don't.
Similar fractions have the same denominator, dissimilar ones don't.
Finding the lowest common denominator
You have to convert them to equivalent similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first.
3/6 and 5/6 are similar fractions. 3/6 and 4/7 are dissimilar fractions.
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
Because they could be equivalent fractions as for example 3/4 is the same as 12/16
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.
To solve a Dissimilar Fraction,you must change the denominator to a similar fraction then proceed with the Adding/Subtracting Dissimilar Fraction...
The answer depends on WHAT you want to do with them.
Well, similar means the same and dissimilar means different, so the difference is that they are different.
Convert them to decimals or Convert them to similar fractions
Two ways: Convert them to decimals and compare or convert them to equivalent fractions with a common denominator and compare the numerators.
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
Simplify your answer into lowest term.Do the operation.
When their denominators are the same or different numbers.
If the fractions are similar, they will simplify to the same fraction.
Similiar fractions are fractions that have the same denominator.
Two ways: convert them to decimals or convert them to similar fractions and compare the numerators.
Equivalent fractions have similar values
Similar fractions are fractions with the same denominator. In order to add or subtract fractions they need to be similar.
