Here are 2 ways you can add or subtract fractions. The one on the left is the one we learned in class. The one on the right is another way to add or subtract fractions. Always be sure to simplify your answer!
Whatever strategy you choose,
factor "rainbows" or "trees,"
your goal should be to find the
Greatest Common Factor (GCF).
Then divide both the numerator and
denominator by the GCF to simplify the
fraction to its simplest form!
