Adding and subtracting is plain to see,
you match the bottoms perfectly.

it's the top times the top,
and the bottom times the bottom.
Dividing fractions is easy as pie,
just flip the second fraction and multiply!
There are 3 Simple Steps to add fractions:
Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same
Step 2: Add the top numbers (the numerators), put the answer over the denominator.
Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if needed).
Multiply the tops, multiply the bottoms.
There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions
1. Multiply the top numbers (the numerators).
2. Multiply the bottom numbers (the denominators).
3. Simplify the fraction if needed.
Turn the second fraction upside down, then multiply.
There are 3 Simple Steps to Divide Fractions:
Step 1. Turn the second fraction (the one you want to divide by) upside-down
(this is now a reciprocal).
