Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so to find a common denominator first you need to know what a denominator is. a denominator is the bottom number under a fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 goes into 12 pretty easy when you times it by 4 so whatever you do to the bottom you do to the top. so it would be 4/12 and 2/12 because we didn't have to times the 12 by anything it stayes the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{2}{12} = \frac{2*1}{2*6} = \frac{1}{6}\] \[\frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{2}*\frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{6}\]
