# Fractions

Contents

Learn how to do basic arithmetic with fractions (add, subtract, and multiply). Also learn about mixed numbers and equivalent fractions, and use this knowledge to compare fractions with unlike denominators.

## Equivalent fractions

Learn how to find equivalent fractions by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number.

## Common denominators

Using our knowledge of equivalent fractions, let's rewrite fractions to have the same denominator.

## Comparing fractions with unlike denominators visually

Learn how to compare fractions with unlike denominators by drawing diagrams to represent each fraction.

## Comparing fractions with unlike denominators

Learn how to compare fractions with unlike denominators. Along the way, practice finding common denominators and simplifying fractions.

## Decomposing fractions

See that a fraction can be broken up (or decomposed) into a bunch of other fractions.

## Adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators

Learn how to add and subtract fractions. This is an introductory tutorial, so the fractions you add and subtract have the same denominators.

## Adding and subtracting fractions: word problems

Learn how to solve word problems by adding and subtracting fractions. This is an introductory tutorial, so the fractions you add and subtract have the same denominators.

## Mixed numbers

Learn how to write improper fractions as mixed numbers (and mixed numbers as improper fractions).

## Adding and subtracting mixed numbers

Learn how to add and subtract mixed numbers. This is an introductory tutorial, so the fractions you add and subtract have the same denominators.

## Multiplying unit fractions and whole numbers

Learn how to multiply unit fractions and whole numbers.

## Multiplying whole numbers and fractions

Learn the art of multiplying whole numbers by fractions. See how 3 times 2/3 is the same as 6 times 1/3, which is the same as 6/3.

## Multiplying whole numbers and fractions word problems

Learn how to solve word problems by multiplying whole numbers and fractions.

## Fractions with denominators of 10 and 100

Practice working with fractions that have denominators of 10 and 100. This practice prepares us for the next tutorial on decimal numbers.
