To add fractions with different denominators,
First find a common denominator, by finding the L.C.D and then multiplying each fraction by the number that makes the denominator of the fraction same as the L.C.D and then add the fractions.
To change improper fractions into mixed numbers, divide the numerator by the denominator then the quotient is a whole number part and the remainder over the divisor is the proper fraction part.
Consider the statement,
The given fractions are .
Factoring each denominator into prime factors.
Here, 2 appears two times as a factor of 4 and 3 appears once as a factor of 3.
