Find the Least Common Multiple (LCM)
The denominators are the same, the LCM is {{f1.rDenominator}}
The LCM for the denominators {{f1.rDenominator}} and {{f2.rDenominator}} is {{lcd}}.
Multiply by 1
Multiply each fraction by 1, where 1 is expressed as a fraction.
The denominators are the same, nothing to do here.
The sum of {{f1.nNumerator}}/{{f1.nDenominator}} and {{f2.nNumerator}}/{{f2.nDenominator}} is {{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}}.
The difference of {{f1.nNumerator}}/{{f1.nDenominator}} and {{f2.nNumerator}}/{{f2.nDenominator}} is {{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}}.
The product of {{f1.rNumerator}}/{{f1.rDenominator}} and {{f2.rNumerator}}/{{f2.rDenominator}} is {{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}}
The quotient of {{f1.rNumerator}}/{{f1.rDenominator}} and {{f2.rNumerator}}/{{f2.rDenominator}} is {{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}}
Stop! The answer
you have from the previous step is correct!
Only continue to the next steps if the instructions
explicitly ask you to.
Reduce Your Answer
{{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}} is already reduced.
The answer {{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}} is correct and acceptable but be nice and reduce it.
{{answer.numerator}}/{{answer.denominator}} becomes {{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}}.
Improper Fraction?
The reduced answer {{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}} is not an improper fraction.
The reduced answer {{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}} is correct and acceptable but people prefer to see a whole number.
{{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}} becomes {{display.whole}}.
The reduced answer {{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}} is correct and acceptable but people prefer to see a mixed number.
{{answer.rNumerator}}/{{answer.rDenominator}} becomes {{display.whole}} {{display.numerator}}/{{display.denominator}}.
