2. Learn to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators.

3. Vocabulary least common denominator (LCD)

4. 1 3 A pattern for a double-circle skirt requires 9 yards of 45-inch-wide material. To add a ruffle takes another 2 yards. If the total amount of material for the skirt and ruffle are cut from a bolt of fabric 15 yards long, how much fabric is left? 2 5 1 2

5. To solve this problem, add and subtract rational numbers with unlike denominators. First find a common denominator using one of the following methods: Method 1 Find a common denominator by multiplying one denominator by the other denominator. Method 2 Find the least common denominator (LCD); the least common multiple of the denominators.

12. Two dancers are making necklaces from ribbon for their costumes. They need pieces measuring 13 inches and 12 inches. How much ribbon will be left over after the pieces are cut from a 36-inch length? 7 8 3 4 3 4 7 8 36 – 12 – 13 55 4 288 8 103 8 – – 110 8 288 8 103 8 – – 75 8 3 8 3 8 , or 9 There will be 9 inches left. Example: Consumer Application Subtract both amounts from 36 to find the amount of ribbon left. Write as improper fractions. The LCD is 8. Rewrite with a common denominator. Simplify.
