ADDING MEASURES


FRACTION RULES

RULES

1. To add fractions you must have a

common denominator

2. Reduce fractions


COMMON DENOMINATOR

How do you get a common denominator?

8 can be the common denominator when the fractions are in fourths or eighths.

16can be the common denominator for

all rulers marked in 16ths.

Use 32as the common denominator when the ruler is marked in 32nds.


COMMON DENOMINATOR

Multiply top and bottom by the same value to change the denominator correctly.


ADDING MEASURES

  • Get the common denominator

  • Rewrite the fractions


ADDING MEASURES

  • Get the common denominator

  • Rewrite the fractions

  • Add the numerators

  • Carry the denominator forward


ADDING MEASURES

  • Get the common denominator

  • Rewrite the fractions

  • Add the numerators

  • Carry the denominator forward

  • Reduce the answer


ADDING MEASURESwith WHOLE NUMBERS

  • Add the whole numbers (like always)

  • Get the common denominator

  • Rewrite the fractions

  • Add the numerators

  • Carry the denominator forward

  • Reduce the answer

  • Rewrite the fractions

  • Subtract the numerators

  • Carry the denominator forward

  • Reduce, if necessary

MULTIPLYING MEASURES

  • One-half of 1 inch means

or of 1 inch

“of is another way to say times”


MULTIPLYING MEASURES

Two times one-half is

adding one-half two times.

2 X  = 1 +  =1
