LCD of and is 8. Step 2 Subtract the fractions first, then the whole numbers. Simplify the difference, if necessary. 3 4 5 8 Step 2 Write equivalent fractions with a denominator of 6. Step 1 Write the mixed number as an improper fraction. Step 1 Write the mixed number as improper fractions. Step 2 Rewrite as multiplication using the reciprocal of the divisor. Step 3 Multiply the numerators and denominators and simplify. Step 4 Write as a mixed number. Step 2 Multiply the numerators and denominators of the two factors. Step 3 Simplify the product. Step 4 Write the product as a mixed number, if it is an improper fraction. Step 3 Add the fractions. Then add the whole numbers. Simplify the sum, if necessary. 2 3 1 6 2 3 2 = 4 6 2 x2 x2 3 4 4 = 6 8 4 5 8 2 1 8 2 x2 x2 1 6 3 + 5 6 5 x = m Divide 3 7 1 2 3 1 ÷ = n = = factor factor product quotient divisor dividend multiples of 3: 3,6,9,12,15... multiples of 6: 6,12,18,24... © Copyright NewPath Learning.
