**Adding improper fractions with unlike, or different**

denominators.

denominators.

Example: Add these improper fractions with unlike denominators.

step1: You need to find the least common denominator (LCD)

of the two fractions.

In this case the LCD is 12.

step2: Know write two equivalent fractions using 12 as the

LCD.

step3: Know that you can show that both fractions have

12 as their common denominator (LCD) you can add their

numerators together and put the sum over the common

denominator.

**Note: As you can see improper fractions with unlike denominators is added the same way as proper Fractions with Unlike Denominators. **
