# 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.
