Addition and Subtraction of Like Fractions

Chapter 7 Class 6 Fractions
Concept wise

Like fractions are those fractions where denominators are same

Β

Eg: Β  1/3, 2/3, 4/3, 8/3

Β  Β  Β  Β  Β 2/9, 4/9, 6/9, 8/9

Β

Add 1/3 & 4/3

Β  1/3Β  + 4/3

Β

Since denominator is same,

we add numerators

Β

Β  Β  = (1+ 4)/3

Β  Β  = 5/3

Β

Subtract 2 / 9 from 6 / 9

Β  6/9 Β β 2/9

Β

Since denominator is same,

we subtract numerators

Β  Β  = (6 - 2)/9

Β  Β  = 4/9

Adding & Subtracting Like FractionsLike fractions are those fractions where denominators are same Eg: 1/3, 2/3, 4/3, 8/3 2/9, 4/9, 6/9, 8/9 Add π/π & π/π 1/3 + 4/3 Since denominator is same, we add numerators = (1+ 4)/3 = 5/3 Subtract π/π from π/π 6/9 β 2/9 Since denominator is same, we subtract numerators = (6 β 2)/9 = 4/9
