Questions and Answers

Answer : B

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 3 × 5 = 15.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and adding

$\frac{5}{15}$ + $\frac{12}{15}$ = $\frac{5+12}{15}$ = $\frac{17}{15}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{3}$ + $\frac{4}{5}$ = $\frac{17}{15}$

Q 2 - Subtract $\frac{2}{13}$$\frac{1}{11}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 13 × 11 = 143.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and subtracting

$\frac{22}{143}$$\frac{13}{143}$ = $\frac{(22-13)}{143}$ = $\frac{9}{143}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{2}{13}$$\frac{1}{11}$ = $\frac{9}{143}$

Answer : A

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.LCD is 9 × 8 = 72.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and adding

$\frac{8}{72}$ + $\frac{27}{72}$ = $\frac{(8+27)}{72}$ = $\frac{35}{72}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{9}$ + $\frac{3}{8}$ = $\frac{35}{72}$

Q 4 - Subtract $\frac{3}{12}$$\frac{1}{9}$

Answer : D

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 36.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and subtracting

$\frac{9}{36}$$\frac{4}{36}$ = $\frac{(9-4)}{36}$ = $\frac{5}{36}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{3}{12}$$\frac{1}{9}$ = $\frac{5}{36}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.LCD is 4 × 7 = 28.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and adding

$\frac{7}{28}$ + $\frac{12}{28}$ = $\frac{(7+12)}{28}$ = $\frac{19}{28}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{4}$ + $\frac{3}{7}$ = $\frac{19}{28}$

Answer : D

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 11 × 10 = 110.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and subtracting

$\frac{30}{110}$$\frac{11}{110}$ = $\frac{30-11}{110}$ = $\frac{19}{110}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{3}{11}$ - $\frac{1}{10}$ = $\frac{19}{110}$

Answer : A

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.LCD is 6 × 7 = 42.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and adding

$\frac{7}{42}$ + $\frac{30}{42}$ = $\frac{7+30}{42}$ = $\frac{37}{42}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{6}$ + $\frac{5}{7}$ = $\frac{37}{42}$

Q 8 - Subtract $\frac{3}{13}$$\frac{1}{12}$

Answer : B

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD 13 × 12 = 156.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and subtracting

$\frac{36}{156}$$\frac{13}{156}$ = $\frac{(36-13)}{156}$ = $\frac{23}{156}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{3}{13}$$\frac{1}{12}$ = $\frac{23}{156}$

Q 9 - Subtract $\frac{4}{15}$ - $\frac{1}{5}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 15 as 15 is multiple of 5.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and subtracting

$\frac{4}{15}$$\frac{3}{15}$ = $\frac{(4-3)}{15}$ = $\frac{1}{15}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{4}{15}$ - $\frac{1}{5}$ = $\frac{1}{15}$

Answer : D

Explanation

Step 1:

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.LCD is 3 × 5 = 15.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions and adding

$\frac{3}{15}$ + $\frac{10}{15}$ = $\frac{(3+10)}{15}$ = $\frac{13}{15}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{5}$ + $\frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{13}{15}$
