# How Do You Solve Fraction Problems Using Basic Math?

To solve fraction problems using basic math, understand the operations necessary to solve different fraction problems, such as simplifying fractions, understanding equivalent fractions, adding fractions, subtracting fractions and multiplying fractions. Also understand dividing fractions, comparing fractions, converting to tenths and hundredths, and equivelating fractions to tenths and hundredths.

Continue ReadingUse the order of operations to work down multiple fractions, starting with two at a time. To multiply fractions, simply multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator. The results that you get from multiplying these two numbers is the answer to the multiplication problem.

Dividing fractions is similar to multiplying fractions, except you flip the second fraction over to make the denominator's number the numerator and the numerator's number the denominator before you begin multiplying. Once the numbers are flipped and multiplied, the fraction you receive is the answer to the division problem.

To add and subtract fractions, first find the common denominator between the fractions. This is achieved by multiplying the two spaces in both fractions by each other's denominators and then simplifying both fractions to simplest terms. Once the denominators are the same and simplified, perform the subtraction and addition operations with the numerators, and keep the denominators the same.
