## My goal was to make sure I know 3 math concepts addition subtraction multiplication and division towards fractions. I also learned about how to find a fraction of a number. I was to find out what they were and explain my knowledge of it.

## Adding and Subtracting Fractions:

So adding fractions are actually simply just finding the common denominator and finding the equivalent fractions for it. So for example 3/4 + 6/8 we would need to find the common multiple for the denominator. And both of them has a multiple of 8 so we can make 3/4 have a denominator that is 8. So 3/4 would be 3/8, but then that wouldn’t make sense because it’s 2 times smaller. So we also need to times 3 by 2 so it gets even into an equivalent fraction. And the reason we times it by 2 is because to turn 4 into 8 we multiply by 2 so we do the same thing to the numerator as well. And it would equal to 6/8, and then now it’s to the second number 5/8, but it already have a denominator that is 8. So it would be the same. And the final equation would be 6/8+6/8 and we would only be adding the numerators. And the answe would be 12/8 and simplified into 1 1/2.

## Multiplying Fractions:

So multiplying fraction are sm easier you just need to multiply the numerator and the numerator and multiply the denominator and the denominator. And you would get the answer.

## Dividing Fractions

So dividing fraction is complicated, you would need to flip the second fraction and you multiply the fractions. And then you will get the result.

## How to find a fraction of a number

So if a question asks you to find 2/3 of 24. You can divide 24 by 3, that means 8 and that is 1/3. Then you can multiply it by 2 to find out 2/3 of 24. That would be 16. And we can find out th answer.

# Real life examples

Fractions are necessary when you cook, you would need to subtract add and do many operations to figure out the measurements
