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.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What way is subracting fractions with unlike denominators like adding fractions with unlike denominators?

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.


Will The LCD of two fractions be the same as the LCM of the numerators of the fractions?

No, the LCM of the denominators.


How do you find the LCM of a fraction?

LCM means lowest common multiple. You cannot find the LCM of a fraction, but can find the LCM of two or more fractions. You do this by splitting the numbers up into their prime factors, then identifying any common factors. You then discard the duplicates of the common factors, and multiply all the others together. The answer is the LCM of the original numbers.

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.
