Q: What does the denominator stand for in fractions?

Write your answer...

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

Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions. If the fractions have the same denominator, you subtract the numerators. If the fractions have different denominators, you have to convert to a common denominator first.Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions.

Regular fractions are the fractions with a numerator that is less than the denominator and irregular fractions are fractions with a denominator less than the numerator.

Fractions with the same denominator are referred to as fractions having a common denominator.

Addition or subtraction of fractions require "like" fractions: that is, fractions with the same denominator.

By finding the lowest common denominator of the fractions.

To compare fractions, convert them to a common denominator - in this case, a denominator of 8 will work.To compare fractions, convert them to a common denominator - in this case, a denominator of 8 will work.To compare fractions, convert them to a common denominator - in this case, a denominator of 8 will work.To compare fractions, convert them to a common denominator - in this case, a denominator of 8 will work.

You first convert them to similar fractions, i.e., to fractions that have the same denominator.* Step one: find a common denominator.* Step two: convert both fractions to equivalent fractions that have that denominator.

You don't need a common denominator to divide fractions.

To compare two fractions, convert them to a common denominator.To compare two fractions, convert them to a common denominator.To compare two fractions, convert them to a common denominator.To compare two fractions, convert them to a common denominator.

Any fractions with a denominator of 8. Also, the denominator of one of the fractions might be any factor of 8.

Just multiply the two denominators of your fractions, the answer you get is a common denominator.

Fractions are integers when their denominator is 1 or when the numerator has the same value as the denominator.

The numerator of the answer is the result of subtracting the numerators of the fractions, and the denominator of the fraction is the same as the common denominator.

You look for a common denominator; convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with the denominator you found; then you do the addition itself.

The two types of fractions are proper fractions, in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator, and improper fractions, in which the numerator is equal to or larger than the denominator.

You can add or subtract fractions only if they are "like" fractions, that is, only if they have the same denominator - unless you know your fractions really well.

numerator by numerator, denominator by denominator

"Unlike" fractions.

Yes you have to add with the same denominator. when ever you do fractions they have to have the same denominator no matter what. So thats a yes

Convert them into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare the numerators.

No only when adding or subtracting fractions a common denominator is needed
