## Addition and Subtraction of Fractions.

Fractions are important ingredients in arithmetic. They are used to represent a part of a whole. There are many ways to represent fractions and it can be confusing for students at first, but this guide will help you with all the basics and some advanced topics. A fraction is a number that represents how much of something there is relative to how much there could be. For example, if you have 2/5 cup of medicine left in your bottle, then 2/5 is the fraction representation for what’s left in your bottle. A fraction can also be represented as the top number over the bottom number (e.g., 2/3). This tells us that there is two-thirds of medicine left in our bottle. The numerator (top number) tells us how many of something there is, and the denominator (bottom number) tells us how much there could be.

To find the equivalent fraction for a fraction, you multiply the numerator and denominator with the same number or you divide the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

For example:

In order for you to perform better in fractions, you ought to understand what are they in arithmetic. Fractions are a way of representing parts of a whole. If **a+b=c** and that **a** and **b **are parts of **c**.They can be classified into two types: proper fractions and improper fractions. Improper fractions are numerators that are greater than denominators or numerators that are less than denominator. Proper fractions, on the other hand, have equal denominators and numerators.

The easiest way to solve problems with fractions is to turn them into equivalent addition or subtraction problems by dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.
