What is a fraction?

A fraction is a part of a whole. It is written as a top number (numerator) divided by a bottom number (denominator). For example, in the fraction 1/2, 1 is the numerator and 2 is the denominator.

When adding or subtracting fractions, you need to have the same denominator. If the denominators are different, you need to find a common denominator before you can add or subtract.


For example, let’s add 1/4 + 1/4:

First, make sure the denominators are the same. Since they are already the same in this case, we can simply add the numerators:

1/4 + 1/4 = 2/4

So, 1/4 + 1/4 = 2/4 or 1/2.
