Like fractions have the same denominators (bottom part of fraction), unlike fractions do not.

Unlike. Unlike. Unlike. Unlike.

The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. Fractions like 1/3 and 1/4 have different numbers on the bottom. Those are unlike denominators.

no, to add and subtract like and unlike fractions the denominator has to be the same,

Change them to like fractions and proceed.

unlike fractions

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

You must have 2 fractions or more to have unlike fractions. They are fractions with different denominators such as 7/8 and 1/2. Like fractions would have the same denominator like 7/8 and 4/8.

A fraction where the denominators are different EG: 1/6 and 1/4. Like fractions are when the denominators are the same EG: 1/6 and 2/6 Hope this helped :))))

The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. Fractions like 1/3 and 1/4 have different numbers on the bottom. Those are unlike denominators.

fractions having same denominators are like fractions & others are 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.

Unlike fractions have denominators that are unequal, and therefore cannot be added or subtracted. If two fractions need to be added or subtracted they must first be converted to like fractions.
