Thus and a have a common denominator. We have seen that, when two or more fractions have a common denominator, they may be added and subtracted as well as whole numbers. We add or subtract the numerators, and write their sum or difference over the common denominator. The first part of the process in the above examples was to reduce them to a common denominator. 76. Reduce ? and } to a common denominator. Note. They may be reduced to twelfths. If it cannot be immediately seen what number must be the common denominator, it may be found by multiplying all the denominators together; for that will always produce a number divisible by all the denominators. 77. Reduce and to a common denominator. 78. Reduce and 1 and to a common denominator. 79. Reduce and to a common denominator. 80. Reduce & and to a common denominator. |
