# Like and Unlike Fractions

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).
