In fractions we will learn about like and unlike fractions.
LIKE FRACTIONS:
Fractions with the same denominators (bottom numbers) are called like fractions.
For example:
(i) ²/₁₃, ⁵/₁₃, ¹²/₁₃ and ³⁵/₁₃ are like fractionswith the same denominators (bottom numbers).
(ii) ¹/₆, ¹⁷/₆, ²⁵/₆ and ¹⁶/₆ are like fractions with the same denominators (bottom numbers).
(iii) ¹⁶/₉, ¹⁹/₉, ⁸⁹/₉ and ¹¹⁵/₉ are like fractionswith the same denominators (bottom numbers).
(iv) ²/₁₅, ¹⁷/₁₅, ³⁹/₁₅ and ¹¹⁵/₁₅ are like fractions with the same denominators (bottom numbers).
UNLIKE FRACTIONS:
Fractions with different denominators (bottom numbers) are called unlike fractions.
For example:
(i) ²/₃, ¹⁵/₁₃, ¹²/₁₇ and ³⁵/₁₉ are unlike fractions with different denominators (bottom numbers).
(ii) ¹/₆, ¹⁷/₁₄, ²⁵/₁₆ and ¹⁶/₂₃ are unlike fractionswith different denominators (bottom numbers).
(iii) ¹⁶/₁₉, ⁹/₄, ⁸⁹/₉ and ¹¹⁵/₂₁ are unlike fractionswith different denominators (bottom numbers).
(iv) ²/₁₅, ¹⁷/₁₁, ³⁹/₇ and ¹⁵/₂₇ are unlike fractionswith different denominators (bottom numbers).
