The question is based on a complete misunderstanding of what is required. Unlike denominators are NOT required!

Unlike. Unlike. Unlike. Unlike.

It will enable you to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators.

convert at least one of them so that they have the same denominator, then proceed with the addition or subtraction

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.

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

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.
