Solution

If you do not understand any part of this solution, ASK MOM OR DAD FOR HELP!
  1. Reduce the Fractions

    1. {{f1.numerator}}/{{f1.denominator}} is already reduced. The first fraction {{f1.numerator}}/{{f1.denominator}} becomes {{f1.rNumerator}}/{{f1.rDenominator}}.
    2. {{f2.numerator}}/{{f2.denominator}} is already reduced. The second fraction {{f2.numerator}}/{{f2.denominator}} becomes {{f2.rNumerator}}/{{f2.rDenominator}}.
  2. 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}}.

  3. Multiply by 1

    Multiply each fraction by 1, where 1 is expressed as a fraction.

    The denominators are the same, nothing to do here.

    1. One for the first fraction is {{f1.multiplier}}/{{f1.multiplier}}. {{f1.rNumerator}}/{{f1.rDenominator}} times {{f1.multiplier}}/{{f1.multiplier}} equals {{f1.nNumerator}}/{{f1.nDenominator}}.
    2. One for the second fraction is {{f2.multiplier}}/{{f2.multiplier}}. {{f2.rNumerator}}/{{f2.rDenominator}} times {{f2.multiplier}}/{{f2.multiplier}} equals {{f2.nNumerator}}/{{f2.nDenominator}}.
  4. {{selectedOp.op}}

    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}}

  5. Stop! The answer you have from the previous step is correct!
     
    Only continue to the next steps if the instructions explicitly ask you to.

  6. 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}}.

  7. 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}}.
