  3. Denominator:
    Represents the whole or sum of the parts (bottom number)
  4. Factors:

  9. Method:
    a particular form of procedure for accomplishing or approaching something
  10. Multiplication Method:

    • 2. find the numbers that divide into both the numerator and denominator evenly
    • 3. make sure you choose the biggest multiple so that you do not have two repeat steps

    • 2. add the numerators
    • 3. place the answer over the common or like denominator
    • 4. reduce if possible
  13. Subtraction Method (like denominator required):
    • 1. line up the fraction horizontally
