Convert them to one or the other. Your answer will usually be more accurate if you're adding fractions.

How do you you order prime fractions?

Usually they are ordered from smallest to largest.

Do you ever have to simplify if you find the LCD when subtracting fractions?

No because in order to subtract or add fractions the denominator of the fractions must be the same and if they are not then the lowest common denominator of the fractions must be found. Having subtracted or added the fractions then it may be possible to simplify the result.

What are the rules of the dissimilar fractions?

I assume you mean, with different denominators. If you want to add the fractions, subtract them, or compare them (determine which one is greater), you have to convert them to similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first. Converting to similar fractions is not necessary, and usually doesn't even help, if you want to multiply or divide fractions.

Adding and subtracting unlike denominators?

Fractions can only be added or subtracted if the denominators are the same. If the denominators are different, then the fractions need to be made into equivalent fractions with the same denominator. The new denominator can be found simply by multiplying the denominators together, but this can lead to some large fractions with which to work. A better new denominator is the lowest common multiple of (all the) denominators. (Once the new denominator is found, the fractions' new numerators are found by multiplying their current numerator by the new denominator divided by their current denominator to make their equivalent fractions with the new denominator.) Once all the fractions are converted into equivalent fractions with the new denominator then the fractions can be added or subtracted, with the result being simplified (if possible).
