When fractions have unlike denominators the first step is to find equivalent fractions so that all of the denominators are the same. We find the Least Common Denominator (LCD) then rewrite all fractions in the equation as equivalent fractions using the LCD as the denominator. When all denominators are alike, simply add or subtract the numerators and place the result over the common denominator. The resulting fraction can be simplified to lowest terms or written as a mixed number. In maths, fractions represent a part of a whole thing. Mathematically, a fraction can be written in the form of a/b, where a is the numerator and b is the numerator. While performing the comparison of fractions, we may come across different types of fractions such as like and unlike fractions, etc. If the denominators of fractions are different, then they are said to be unlike fractions. For example, 7/15 and 19/12 are called unlike fractions since the denominators 15 and 12 are not equal. Thus, addition of these fractions can be done by taking the LCM of 15 and 12 as given below:
