How is adding like fractions and adding unlike fractions the same?

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.

How do you add improper fractions?

If the denominators are different, find a common denominator, convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with the same denominator, proceed with adding the numerators, put that total over the denominator, simplify if possible. If the denominators are the same, skip the conversion, proceed with adding the numerators, put that total over the denominator, simplify if possible.
