## How do you add fractions step by step?

To add fractions there are Three Simple Steps:

- Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same.
- Step 2: Add the top numbers (the numerators), put that answer over the denominator.
- Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if possible)

## How do you add fractions with no denominators?

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 addition fractions?**

You use equivalent fractions to make them the same. A common multiple of 2 and 3 is 6. So, for each fraction we need an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 6. Now you can add these together.

### How do you make denominators the same when adding fractions?

To add fractions with the same denominators,the denominator remains the same and we add the numerators together.

### What is the algorithm for adding fractions?

Algorithm to add two fractions. Find a common denominator by finding the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of the two denominators. Change the fractions to have the same denominator and add both terms. Reduce the final fraction obtained into its simpler form by dividing both numerator and denominator by there largest common factor.
