## Definition:

A fraction is a numerical quantity which is not a whole number. There are different kinds of fractions, such as proper fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers. Here you will be learning the steps on how to add and subtract these kinds of fraction.

## Summary:

Similar fractions are fractions with the same denominators or what we usually call as common denominators. (e.g. ⅔ & ⅓)

A mixed fraction, on the other hand, is a combination of a whole number and a fraction combined into one. (e.g. 2 ⅓ )

HOW TO ADD & SUBTRACT SIMILAR FRACTIONS

Step 1: Simply add and subtract the numerators of the fractions, while the denominators will remain the same.

HOW TO ADD & SUBTRACT MIXED NUMBERS

Step 1: Convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions.
Step 2: Simply add and subtract the numerators of the fractions then convert it back to a Mixed Fraction.

MIXED NUMBERS TO IMPROPER FRACTION

1. Multiply the denominator by the whole number.
2. Add the numerator to the product of the denominator and whole number
3. The sum will be the numerator then copy the denominator.

IMPROPER FRACTION TO MIXED NUMBERS

1. Divide the numerator by the denominator.
2. Write down the quotient as  whole number and the remainder will serve as the new numerator. Copy the denominator.
