### IS THE LCD OF TWO FRACTIONS THE SAME AS THE LCM NUMERATORS AND FRACTIONS?

The LCD of two fractions is the same as the LCM of their denominators.

### 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.

### What is an common multiple of the denominators for two or more fractions?

Multiplying the denominators together of two or more unlike fractions will get you a common multiple.

### When adding fractions with unlike denominators it is most helpful if the fractions are renamed using the?

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.

### 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.

When adding unlike fractions, find the LCM of the denominators and convert them to it.

### How does the concept of LCM relate to fractions?

When you are adding or subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, you need to find a least common denominator, or LCD. The process is the same as finding an LCM between two integers.

### What is the least common denominator of 21 and 7?

The Least Common Denominator (or LCD) is the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators of a pair of fractions. I assume the 7 and 21 are the denominators of two fractions you need to add or subtract.LCD(7, 21) = 21.

### Two or more fractions that are equal is called what?

In actual problems, we convert two (or more) fractions so that they have equal denominators.
