User: Can you please ex plain to me the process of adding unlike fractions such as 1/4 and 1/3 ?

Weegy: First of all, when adding fractions with different denominators, the firststep says that we must change these fractions so that they have the "samedenominator". Here are the steps for adding fractions with different denominators. [ We willbreak-down each step just like before to make sure you've got it. Then we willadd some tougher numbers. And finally, we will help you pull everythingtogether. Okay! So, here are the steps. Build each fraction so that both denominators are equal. Remember, when adding fractions, the denominators must be equal. So we must complete this step first. What this really means is that you must find what is called a Common Denominator. For our advanced lesson you will be required to work the problem using what's called the Least Common Denominator (LCD). In either case you will build each fraction into an equivalent fraction. Re-write each equivalent fraction using this new denominator Now you can add the numerators, and keep the denominator of the equivalent fractions. Re-write your answer as a simplified or reduced fraction, if needed. We know this sounds like a lot of work, and it is, but once you understand thoroughly howto find the Common Denominator or the LCD, and build equivalent fractions, everything else will start to fall into place. ]
