Welcome to Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators with Teacher Harvy! Need help with adding fractions? You're in the right place! Whether you're just starting out, or need a quick refresher, this is the video for you if you're looking for help with how to add fractions with unlike denominators (aka - adding fractions with different denominators). Teacher Harvy will go through two adding fractions examples and explain the steps of how to add fractions with unlike denominators.
Adding fractions with unlike denominators may look tricky, but once you make the denominators the same, addition is a snap. If you're working with improper fractions where the numerators are larger than the denominators, make the denominators the same. Then add the numerators. If you're adding mixed numbers, turn them into improper fractions and make each fraction equivalent. This will make it easy to add the fractions together.
