  1. 1. Adding and Subtracting fractions with Unlike denominators
  2. 2. Rewrite the problem with equivalent fractions <ul><li>List the multiples of both denominators. </li></ul><ul><li>Find the least common multiple (LCM). </li></ul><ul><li>Write new fractions with the LCM as the new denominator. </li></ul><ul><li>Find the factor you multiply by to get from your original denominator to your new denominator. </li></ul><ul><li>Use that same factor, and multiply it by your original numerator to get a new numerator. </li></ul>
