Questions and Answers

Answer : D

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD is 4 × 7 = 28.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{7}{28}$ + $\frac{4}{28}$ = $\frac{(7+4)}{28}$ = $\frac{11}{28}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{4}$ + $\frac{1}{7}$ = $\frac{11}{28}$

Q 2 - Subtract $\frac{1}{7}$$\frac{1}{10}$

Answer : A

Explanation

Step 1:

Since denominators are same, subtracting the numerators

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

LCD = 7 × 10 = 70.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{10}{70}$$\frac{7}{70}$ = $\frac{(10-7)}{70}$ = $\frac{3}{70}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{7}$$\frac{1}{10}$ = $\frac{3}{70}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD = 2 × 9 = 18.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{9}{18}$ + $\frac{2}{18}$ = $\frac{(9+2)}{18}$ = $\frac{11}{18}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{2}$ + $\frac{1}{9}$ = $\frac{11}{18}$

Q 4 - Subtract $\frac{1}{9}$$\frac{1}{10}$

Answer : B

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD = 9 × 10 = 90.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{10}{90}$$\frac{9}{90}$ = $\frac{(10-9)}{90}$ = $\frac{1}{90}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{9}$$\frac{1}{10}$ = $\frac{1}{90}$

Answer : A

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD is 3 × 7 = 21.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{7}{21}$ + $\frac{3}{21}$ = $\frac{(7+3)}{21}$ = $\frac{10}{21}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{3}$ + $\frac{1}{7}$ = $\frac{10}{21}$

Q 6 - Subtract $\frac{1}{9}$ - $\frac{1}{11}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD is 9 × 11 = 99.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{11}{99}$$\frac{9}{99}$ = $\frac{(11-9)}{99}$ = $\frac{2}{99}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{9}$ - $\frac{1}{11}$ = $\frac{2}{99}$

Answer : D

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD of 3 and 6 is 6.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{2}{6}$ + $\frac{1}{6}$ = $\frac{(2+1)}{6}$ = $\frac{3}{6}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{3}$ + $\frac{1}{6}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$

Q 8 - Subtract $\frac{1}{6}$$\frac{1}{8}$

Answer : B

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD of 6 and 8 = 24.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{4}{24}$$\frac{3}{24}$ = $\frac{(4-3)}{24}$ = $\frac{1}{24}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{6}$$\frac{1}{8}$ = $\frac{1}{24}$

Answer : C

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD is 2 × 5 = 10.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{5}{10}$ + $\frac{2}{10}$ = $\frac{(5+2)}{10}$ = $\frac{7}{10}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{1}{2}$ + $\frac{1}{5}$ = $\frac{7}{10}$

Q 10 - Subtract $\frac{1}{8}$$\frac{1}{9}$

Answer : A

Explanation

Step 1:

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

LCD is 8 × 9 = 72.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{9}{72}$$\frac{8}{72}$ = $\frac{(9-8)}{72}$ = $\frac{1}{72}$

Step 3:

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