### Equivalent Fractions

Did you know that equivalent fractions are almost like reduced fractions? They are! If you don't believe me, please look at the diagram below.

See the similarities? Four eighths and one half are equivalent fractions and four eighths also can be reduced to one half for the most proper answer.

If you have trouble reducing fractions, then keep reading this post.

All we have to do is divide. if you don't understand, look at the picture below.

See? If you still don't understand, ask someone who knows to help you. I'd love to help you if you need help or even Mr. Isfeld. But remember, don't just sit there and struggle. If you need help, ask someone who can help. Thanks for reading my post. And remember to study for the test on Friday, finish all your unfinished pages in your number of the day booklet and homework booklet, and make at least 5 posts on this blog before Christmas break of you'll be missing the movie in the morning and dance in the afternoon on Wednesday.

Question:

Copy and complete the table. If the number in the left column is divisible by the number in the top row, put a ✓. If it is not divisible, put an X.

Solution:

Lets start with 630. 630 is divisible by 2, 5 and 10 because 630 ends in 0. It's divisible by 3 and 9 because the sum of the number is 9. 9 is divisible by 3 and 9. It's divisible by 6 because it's divisible by both 2 and 3.

The next number is 5184. It is divisible by 2 because it ends in 4, an even number. It is divisible by 3 and 9 because the sum of the number is 18. 18 is divisible by both 9 and 3. It is divisible by 4 because if you divide 5184 by 2 twice, you get a number with no remainder. It's divisible by 8 because if you divide 5184 by 2 thrice, you get a number with no remainder.

This number, 2035 is only divisible by 5 because 2035 ends in 5.

Finally, 810 is divisible by 2, 5 and 10 because 810 ends in 0. It's divisible by 9 and 3 because the sum of the number is 9, which can be divided evenly by 9 and 3. It is divisible by 6 because 810 is divisible by both 2 and 3.

### What is a numerator and a denominator?

The numerator is the

The denominator is the

**top**number of the fraction. It tells how many parts of the whole we are dealing with.The denominator is the

**bottom**number of the fraction. The name gives you a clue on which number it is.**DE**nominator. DE usually means make lower, bottom.. The denominator tells how many parts of the whole is equally divided into.### Multiples and factors - The Difference.

Multiples and factors are very different. In fact, they are the opposite of each other.

Multiples are the product of any given number and natural number like 1, 2, 3. They are bigger than the given number you are finding multiples for. The only multiple that isn't bigger is the first multiple, the number itself.

e.g. 2. - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and so on..

While factors are numbers that can go into one another with no remainder. They are smaller than the given number you are finding factors for. The only factor that isn't smaller is the last factor, the number itself. The factors of 10 are, 1, 2, 5, 10. You can multiply those numbers to get 10.

e.g. 2 x 5 = 10. Thpse 2 numbers in the multiplication sentence are factors of ten.

See? They are very different.

### How to add with Unlike Denominators.

This is how to add with unlike denominators.

The picture in the post may help you understand how to add with unlike denominators.

First, you must find the Lowest common multiple (LCM) of the denominators. The denominators are the bottom number of the fraction, which tells how many parts of the whole is equally divided into.

In this case, 12 is the lowest common factor of 3, and 4.

Once we have found the LCM, you have to find a way to get your current denominator to twelve. But always REMEMBER.

So, in order to get 3 to 12, you have to multiply it 4 times. So we end up with Four Twelfths.

Now onto two fourths, which you can also call one half.. In order to get 4 to 12, you have to multiply it by 4 to get to 12. So we end up with six twelfths.

Add all of them together. And you get Ten Twelfths. You don't have to add the denominator.

That is how you add unlike denominators.

1) You have two

eg.

1) You have two

**fractions**.eg.

2) Now you find the **multiples** of the two denominators until you find a **L.C.M.** (lowest common multiple).

eg.

4- 4, 8, 12, 16, 20

6- 6, 12, 18, 24, 30

So the **L.C.M.** is 12.

3) Next you make an equivalent fraction.

How do you get from 4 to 12 and how to you get from 6 to 12?

eg.

**Always remember** whatever you do to the** bottom** you** must** do to the **top**.

4) Now we have two fractions that have the **same denominator** now we can add them together.

eg.

Then you make it into it's **simplest form** but you can't make 5/12 simpler.

So this is how you add fractions with unlike denominators.

### Adding with unlike denominators

To add unlike denominators, you must find the L.C.M. (least common multiple)

5/8 + 1/6 =

L.C.M. for 6 and 8

8, 16,

6, 12, 18,

5/8

8x3 = 24

5x3 = 15 Whatever you do to the top, you must do to the bottom.

1/6

6x4 = 24

1x4 = 4

15/24 + 4/24 = 19/24

That's how you add with unlike denominators.

5/8 + 1/6 =

L.C.M. for 6 and 8

8, 16,

**24****,**326, 12, 18,

**24**5/8

8x3 = 24

5x3 = 15 Whatever you do to the top, you must do to the bottom.

1/6

6x4 = 24

1x4 = 4

15/24 + 4/24 = 19/24

That's how you add with unlike denominators.

### Subtracting with like denominators

Subtracting with like denominators is the similar to adding with like denominators.

Subtract the numerators only and keep the denominators the same.

Numerators- top number of a fraction

Denominators- bottom number of a fraction

2/4 - 1/4 = 1/4 Correct

2/4 - 1/4 = 1/0 Incorrect The answer is not even possible.

Try this, 3/4 - 1/4 =

Subtract the numerators only and keep the denominators the same.

Numerators- top number of a fraction

Denominators- bottom number of a fraction

2/4 - 1/4 = 1/4 Correct

2/4 - 1/4 = 1/0 Incorrect The answer is not even possible.

Try this, 3/4 - 1/4 =

### Adding with like denominators

When adding like denominators, you must add only the numerators.

Numerators- top number of a fraction

Denominators- bottom number of a fraction

2/4 + 1/4 = 3/4 Correct

2/4 + 1/4 = 3/8 Incorrect

Try 5/12 + 1/12=

Numerators- top number of a fraction

Denominators- bottom number of a fraction

2/4 + 1/4 = 3/4 Correct

2/4 + 1/4 = 3/8 Incorrect

Try 5/12 + 1/12=

### Adding with Unlike Denominators

1) Find the

**common**denominator

LCM(lowest common Multiple) of 1/4 and 1/6 is 12

**-Multiple: the product of any given number and natural number like 1,2,3**

**Multiples is just skip counting**

**eg: some multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18**

**Some multuples of 5 are 6, 12, 18 24**

**So the LCM(lowest common multiple) of 4 and 6 is 12**

### Divisibility Rules

Rule for 1- All whole numbers are divisible by 1

Rule for 2- All even numbers are divisible by 2 twice

Rule for 3- The sum of te digits is divisible by 3

Rule for 4- 4=2x2 all numbers divisible by 2

### Adding with Unlike Denominators.

**To add with Unlike Denominators you must follow these steps.**

1)Find the

**common**denominator but it must be the LCM (Lowest Common Multiple). A Multiple- Is the

**product**of any given number and natural number like 1,2,3. eg. Multiple of 3 are ; 3,6,9,12,15,18,21 etc.

Multiples of 2 are 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18 Multiple of 5 are 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40

You can't add that, so you have to find the

**common multiple**.Multiple of 4- 4,8,

**12**,16,20,24,28,32,Multiple of 6 - 6,

12 is the common multiple between those numbers.**12**,18,24,30,36,42The next step is to put "

**12**"(in this case) The new denominator and whatever you multiply in the bottom, you must do in the top.The last step is to add it all up.

### Multiple -

The product of any given number and natural number like 1,2,3 ...

Eg. some multiple of 3 are: 3,6,9,12,15,18

multiple is just skip counting

### Common Denominator-

a common multiple of the Denominator of a set of fraction

Eg.a common Denominator for 1/4 and 1/6 is 12 because a common multiple of 4 and 6 is 12

1/4= /12

1/6= /12

### Rule for number 2

All even numbers are divisible by 2.

Example: even numbers end in 0,2,4,6,8

Odd numbers end in 3,5,7,9

Example: even numbers end in 0,2,4,6,8

Odd numbers end in 3,5,7,9

### Numerators and Denominators

### Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators

eg.

1/4 + 1/6 or 3/5 -1/2

You must find a common denominator to make the bottom number the same.

Common Denominator- a common multiple of the denominators of the set of fractions.

eg.

a common denominator for 1/4 and 1/6 is 12 because a common multiple of 4 and 6 is 12.

Multiple- the product of any given number and natural number like 1,2,3.....

Eg.

some multiples of 3: 3,6,9,12,15,18You must find the 1st 5 multiples of each number

To make a common denominator you must find L.C.M- lowest common multiple

4 and 6

6- 6,12,18,24,304- 4,8,12,16,20

the L.C.M is 12

Once you find a common denominator, you make an equivalent fraction

eg.

3/12 + 2/12= 5/12

### What is a Numerator and a Denominator

What is a Numerator

A numerator is the top number of a fraction and tells us how many parts of the whole we have or are dealing with.

Eg.

### Divisibility Rules For 8

All numbers thats divisible by 2.

24 divided by 2 = 12

12 divided by 2 = 6

6 divided by 2 = 8

24 is divisible by 8.

### The Answer For #13 on the Textbook Page #221

The question asks, the sum of two fractions is 1. If the difference(the answer to a subtraction question) between the two fractions is two eighths, what are the two fractions?

What it`s asking is, (fraction A) plus (fraction B) should equal 1, but (fraction A) subtract (fraction B) should equal to two eighths. If you still don`t understand, please look at the diagram.

So what you have to do first is, find all the possibilities that will equal eight eighths. Please look at the following diagram.

Now, you should make all the equations subtraction questions instead of addition. Once you do that, which subtraction equation equals two eighths?
