Like fractions are those fractions where denominators are same

ย 

Eg: ย  1/3, 2/3, 4/3, 8/3

ย  ย  ย  ย  ย 2/9, 4/9, 6/9, 8/9

ย 

Add 1/3 & 4/3

ย  1/3ย  + 4/3

ย 

Since denominator is same,

we add numerators

ย 

ย  ย  = (1+ 4)/3

ย  ย  = 5/3

ย 

Subtract 2 / 9 from 6 / 9

ย  6/9 ย โˆ’ 2/9

ย 

Since denominator is same,

we subtract numerators

ย  ย  = (6 - 2)/9

ย  ย  = 4/9
