### Meldee's Super Scribe Post

OK, I know this is late, but I had a party to go to on Friday and not to mention I had chores to do (And still do), so be glad i'm posting this up at all. My post is on adding fractions. To add fractions of different denominators, there are a couple of steps on doing this. Let's say you have a question like this:

Now the denominators are different, so you have to find the least common denominator (Look at Julie's post for more info on LCD). To do that you do these steps.

Steps

Step 1: Find the lowest multiple of both denominators. (In this case, find the lowest multiple of 2 and 6)

Step 2: Multiply the numerators by the same number you multiplied the denominator by. (In this case, 6x2= 12 and 2x6=12, so for 1/2, 1x6=6 and for 3/6 it's 3x2=6)

Step 3: Add as you usually would.

*Reader scratches their head in confustion and I try not to laugh*

OK, I'll use a picture example for each step. Maybe that will help...I hope.

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3:

So, yah. That's how you add fractions. Well, I'm spent and done. Note me if I did anything wrong or if I made a mistake or should fix it in anyway. Thankies!

EXAMPLE OF A MIXED FRACTION :

You can still simplify 1 and 2/6 to 1 and 1/3.

CONVERTING MIXED FRACTIONS INTO IMPROPER FRACTIONS

* STEPS :

1)Multiply the denominator by the whole number.

3) Keep the orginal denominator.

EXAMPLE :

3 7/8 = 31/8

Part 1: 3 x 8 =24 ---> Part 2: 24 + 7 = 31

### Proper Fractions

I think I got, by far, the easiest topic to explain.
A proper fraction is simply a fraction that has a larger denominator than numerator. You can also say that a proper fraction is a piece of a number. See the diagram to the left if you still don't understand.

Improper Fractions
Today for my super scribe post i am doing Improper fractions and it a really easy to understand and i think you can now this in seconds.

The definition of an improper fraction is :A fraction with a numerator that is greater than the denominator

For example 15\3. As you see the numerator is higher then the denominator which denominator is the bottom number and numerator is the top. Now you can convert improper fractions to mixed fraction. A mixed fraction is a number written as a whole number and a fraction.

For example 5 over5\9 well 5 would be the whole and the 5\9 would jsut be the fraction.

Now i am going to give you a question about improper fractions that we mosly learned about

so the question is 25\5 covert that to a mixed number awnsers on the bottom

Awnsers : well 5 goes in 25 5 times so The whole is 5 and the rest remaining is 0 ill show u a picture to understand a little bit more but if u got this right your all ready to have a test with improper fractions.

there eacth divide in 5 lines so I hope u under stood and i hope i made no mistakes till now Every one have a super day !!!!!

### Lowest Common Denominator (LCD) // Julie's super scribe

My super scribe is about lowest common denominator

What is LCD?
**Lowest common denominator is the least common multiple of the denominators of a set of common fractions.

To find the least common denominator, you have to find the least common multiple.

You have to find the lowest common multiple of 4 and six.

To find the lowest common multiple you have to list the factors of 4 and 6

Four: 4 8 12 16 20 24 ... and so on
Six : 6 12 18 24 30 36 ..... an so on

so The lowest common denominator of 3/4 and 5/6 is 12 because thats the least commmon multiple. Its not 24 because 12 comes first.

<--- how to get the numerator.

### Common Denominators

I chose to do Common Denominators as my super scribe post.

Hope you have learned somethings about common denominators.

### Michelle's Super Scribe Post

There are many different fractions. One of them are called equivalent fractions. In this post, I will be explaining what equivalent fractions are and how to solve them.

What are equivalent fractions?

How to Solve:
To get the equivalent of a fraction, you must multiply or divide both the numerator and the denominator by the same number. Whatever you do to the numerator, you must do to the denominator.

An example of an equivalent fraction is 1/2 and 4/8. In this case you are multiplying or dividing by 4. You multiply 1 and 2 by 4. You divide 4 and 8 by 4.

Here is a picture showing 1/2 and 4/8.
