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 ¹*⁵/₂₇ are unlike fractionswith different denominators (bottom numbers).
