    dont worry about fractions. it's easy. you have two things: 6c^3*d and 8b^2*d^2 open up, the numbers: 6,8 variables: c^3, d variables: b^2 d^2 agree?

    So the LCD will be, 6*8 = 48 for variables, c^3 and b^2. now what about d and d^2 we always take the bigger term, so we will take d^2. Therefore our LCD will be, 48*c^3*b^2*d^2

    What we have to do is, we have to make the denominators same as LCD. so we had 6c^3d.. and we have to make it as 48c^3b^2d^2 we have to multiply 6c^3d with something to make it as 48c^3b^2d^2 so we multiplied by 8b^2d.

    When we multiply that for denominator, we multiply the same thing with numerator.

    whatever you multiply with denominator.. you have to multiply the same thing with the numerator.
