# need hlep with algebra?

Favorite Answer

– to multiply fraction, multiply the numerators and then multiply the denominators. Then reduce to lowest terms if necessary.

ex: 2/3 x 4/6= 2 x 4=8

3 x 6=18

the answer is 8/18. then you need to reduce the answer (by dividing) 8/18= 4/9

– to divide fraction, we multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal (up side down) of the second fraction.

ex: 2/3 / 4/6= 2/3 x 6/4= 12/12 or 1

– to subtract or add fraction, we find the least common denominator than add or subtract the fraction normally

ex: 2/3-4/6= 4/6-4/6=0

ex:2/3+4/6= 4/6+4/6=8/6 or 4/3.
