Adding Fractions

Adding fractions requires a common denominator

A + C = AD + CB = AD + CB

B + D = BD + BD = BD

Subtracting fractions requires a common denominator

A - C = AD - CB = AD - CB

B - D = BD - BD = BD

Multiplying fractions is easy

A * C = AC

B * D = BD

Dividing fractions requires one more step

A / C = A*D = AD

B D = B*C BC
