    get a common denominator. the first part is to look at 2 and 6. since you can get 6 by multiplying 2 by 3 you can work it so take 1/2 and multiply by 3/3 which is 1 which doesn't change the fraction at all. 1/2*3/3 = 3/6 then 3/6 - 2/6 = 1/6

    this one requires a little more work. you have to figure the common denominator which will be the least common multiple between 3 and 4. if you notice that 3*4 = 12 and then see that no other number less than 12 is divisible by BOTH 3 and 4, you have found it. (if you use a bigger number than 12 divisible by both 3 and 4, it is ok since you can factor out at the end!) so then 3/4 * 3/3 = 9/12 and 2/3 *4/4 = 8/12 so 8/12 + 9/12 = 17/12 you cannot factor anymore so this is the answer. unless the problem says you cant have improper fractions then this is ok

    ok so its the same thing a commone denominator between 12 and 6. well you know that 6*2 = 12 so this works we have 1/6 *2/2 = 2/12 so 11/12-2/12 = 9/12 now notice you can factor the numerator and denominator to get 3*3 / 3*4 and cancel a set of 3's and we are left with 3/4

    common denominator is 12. 5/6*2/2 = 10/12 3/4*3/3 = 9/12 10/12 + 9/12 = 19/12

    haha maybe ok so common denominator between 2 and 8 is 8 so 2*4 = 8 so 1/2 * 4/4 = 4/8 then 4/8 + 7/8 = 11/8 or 1 3/8
