RULES FOR FRACTION

__Rules for Addition / Subtraction of Fraction __

**Step.1) Convert the mixed fraction
into an improper fraction**

**Step.2) Convert all the fractions into
like fraction **

**Step.3) Add the numerators of the like
fractions obtained in step 2.**

**Step.4) Write a fraction with the
numbers obtained in step 3 as the numerator and the common denominator in step
2 as the denominator.**

**Step.5) Reduce the fraction obtained
in step 4 to its simplest form. If it is an improper fraction then we should express it as a
mixed fraction.**

**
Numerator of the first X (LCM
of denominator ÷
denominator of**** the first) + Numerator of the
second X (LCM of denominator ÷ denominator of
the second)**

**Sum of two fraction =
---------------------------------------**

**
LCM of Denominator**

__Multiplication of fraction -__

**Step.1) Convert the mixed fraction (if
any) into improper fraction**

**Step.2) Multiply the numerators of all
the fractions to form the numerator of the product **

**Step.3) Multiply the denominators of
all the fractions to form the denominator of the product **

**Step.4) Reduce the product to its
simplest form by canceling the common factors from the numerator and
denominator.**

**
Product of
numerators of all fractions**

**Product Of Fraction =
-------------------------------------**

**
Product of
denominators of all fractions**

__Reciprocal of a number –__

**A number is called the reciprocal of
another number if the product of the two numbers is 1. To find the reciprocal of
a number, write the number as a proper or improper fraction and then
interchange the numerator and denominator, retaining the negative sign, if any, in the numerator.**

__Division of Fraction –__

**Step.1) Convert the mixed fraction (if
any) into improper fractions.**

**Step.2) Multiply the dividend and the
reciprocal of the divisor**

**Step.3) Reduce the product to it’s
simplest form.**
