How do you find the common denominator of 3 fractions?

Pick two of the fractions and find the Least Common Multiple of those two denominators. Then take that number, and find the Least Common Multiple between that and the third denominator. This number will be the Least Common Denominator between the three fractions.If you don't care to find the Least common denominator, then just take the three denominators, and multiply them together.

Explain how comparing fractions with like denominators differs from comparing fractions with unlike denominators?

Because when you compare fractions with the same denominators, you do not have to find the least common denominator (LCM or LCD).


Adding unlike fractions?

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.


How do you find the LCM multiple for two fractions?

The LCM is used for integers, not fractions. If you're trying to add unlike fractions, take the LCM of the denominators (known in this case as the least common denominator, or LCD), convert the fractions and proceed.


How you use the least common multiple?
