Like and Unlike Fractions


Like and unlike fractions are discussed here with examples.


What are called like fractions?

Fractions having the same denominators are called like fractions.


For example, 

(i) ²/₁₅, ⁸/₁₅, ¹⁷/₁₅ etc. are like fractions; 

Here the group of fractions having the same denominators as 15. 




(ii) ³/₁₉, ⁷/₁₉, ¹¹/₁₉ etc. are like fractions;

Here the group of fractions having the same denominators as 19.


(iii) ¹/₇, ⁴/₇, ⁶/₇ etc. are like fractions;

Here the group of fractions having the same denominators as 7.


(iv) ¹⁵/₇₁, ⁴¹/₇₁, ⁶²/₇₁ etc. are like fractions;


(v) ⁹¹/₁₀₁, ⁴⁷/₁₀₁, ⁶⁹/₁₀₁ etc. are like fractions;



What are called unlike fractions?

Fractions with different denominators are called unlike fractions.


For example,

(i) ²/₁₃, ⁷/₂₄, ⁹/₁₂₅etc, are unlike fractions.

Here the group of fractions having different denominators.


(ii) ⁷/₁₉, ⁴⁷/₂₅, ²⁹/₁₂₉ etc, are unlike fractions.

Here the group of fractions having different denominators


(iii) ²¹/₁₇, ⁵¹/₁₁₃, ⁹¹/₁₇₁ etc, are unlike fractions.

Here the group of fractions having different denominators


(iv) ⁶¹/₇₃, ¹⁴/₉₃, ¹⁶/₁₈₅ etc, are unlike fractions.
