4 Glossary Boosting: Rewriting a fraction as an equivalent fraction with a higher denominator. Denominator: Bottom number of a fraction indicating how many parts make a whole. Difference: The result when two numbers are subtracted. Divisor: The number after the division sign in a division problem, (i.e. ); or the bottom number of a fraction, (i.e. ); the number "outside" the division house (i.e. ). Equivalent Fraction: Fractions that are found by multiplying the numerators and denominators by the same number. Factor: Numbers equal to or less than a given number that divides the number evenly. For example, the factors of are,,,,,. Fraction: Any number written in the form of one whole number over another,, indicating number of parts being considered over the number of parts that make one whole. Fraction Bar: The line separating the numerator and denominator in a fraction, and it indicates division. Greatest Common Factor (GCF): The largest matching factor of two or more given numbers. It is used to reduce fractions. Improper Fraction: Any fraction with the numerator larger than the denominator. Least Common Denominator (LCD): The smallest matching multiple of two or more given numbers. It is used to "boost" fractions. (Also called Least Common Multiple, LCM) Mixed Number: A whole number and a fraction. (It implies addition of wholes and parts; that is, is read "three and five sevenths".) Multiple: (Similar to the "times table.") A multiple of a given number is equal to the given number or greater. Multiples are found by multiplying the given number in turn by,,,... For example, multiples of are,,,, Numerator: The top number of a fraction. It indicates how many parts of a certain size are represented. Prime Factor: Factors of a number that are only divisible by and the given number. For example, prime factors of are x x x. Some frequently used Prime Numbers are,,,,,. Product: The result when two numbers are multiplied.

5 Proper Fraction: Any fraction when the numerator is less than the denominator. Quotient: The solution to a division problem. Reducing: Dividing the numerator and the denominator by the same number to get an equivalent fraction. Final answers of most fraction problems should be expressed reduced to simplest terms ; in other words, the numerator and denominator have no more common factors. Remainder: The number left after a whole number division problem is complete. When converting an improper fraction to a mixed number, the remainder is the numerator of the fraction. Sum: the result when two numbers are added. Whole Number: The Numbers system including 0,,,,. General Fraction Information The fraction that represents the above picture is and is read five sevenths. That means that five of the parts are shaded, and it would take seven parts of that size to make a whole. One whole can be "cut up" into equal size parts; therefore,, etc. A whole number can be written as a fraction with a denominator of ; for example,. Zero can be written as a fraction using zero as the numerator and any whole number as the denominator, for example, 0. Any whole number may be written as a mixed number by using a zero fraction. For example, 0.

6 To convert a mixed number, Whole Number Mixed Numbers, to an improper fraction, : Numerator Denominator Work in a clockwise direction, beginning with the denominator, (). x Multiply the denominator () by the whole number, () + Add that product, (), to the numerator () of the fraction. ( ) + The denominator remains the same for the mixed number and the improper fraction. Convert to Improper Fractions: ) ) ) Hint: See #0 ) ) ) ) ) 0 ) ) ) ) 0 ) 0) 0 )

7 Finding Equivalent Fractions with Larger Denominators This process is sometimes called Boosting Example : Divide the larger denominator by the smaller to find the factor? used to multiply the denominator. (Note: The product of the smaller denominator and the factor is the larger denominator) Use this factor to multiply the numerator. The result is two equivalent fractions. Note: Equal denominators are required for addition and subtraction of fractions. Find the equivalent fractions as indicated: ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) 0 0 ) 0 ) ) ) ) 0) )

8 Method : Equivalent Fractions with Smaller Denominators Reducing Fractions Example: Reduce the following fraction to lowest terms 0 0 There are three common methods, DO NOT mix steps of the methods! Method : 0 The Greatest Common Factor for 0 and 0 is. Divide the 0 numerator and the denominator by the GCF,. Method : Examine the numerator and denominator for any common 0 factors, divide both numerator and denominator by that 0 common factor. Repeat as needed. Both 0 and 0 are divisible by. Both and are divisible by. 0 0 Express the numerator and denominator as a product of prime factors. ( ) ( ) 0 Divide numerator and denominator by common factors, (x) 0 Multiply remaining factors. Reduce these fractions. ) ) 0 ) ) ) 0) ) 0 ) ) ) ) ) 0 0

9 Remainder Improper Fractions Example: Convert to an Improper Fraction Remember: Dividend Divisor Quotient Divide the numerator () by the denominator (). Write the mixed number in the form: remainder Quotient divisor Note: Check you answer to see if you can reduce the fraction. Convert these improper fractions to mixed numbers. Be sure to reduce when it s possible. ) ) #, Hint: how many wholes will there be? ) 0 ) ) ) ) ) 0 ) ) ) ) ) 0) )

10 Least Common Multiple (LCM) Used to find the Least Common Denominator (LCD) Example: Find the LCM of 0 and Note: There are four common methods; DO NOT mix the steps of the methods! Method Remember that multiples are equal to or larger than the given number. 0, 0, 0, 0, List the multiples of each of the given numbers, in, 0,, ascending order. LCM 0 Method, 0,, 0 remainder 0 0 no remainder LCM 0 Method 0 ; ; LCM 0 Method 0 x x x x x x 0 Or LCM 0 The LCM is the first multiple common to both lists. List the multiples of the larger number. Divide each in turn by the smaller. The LCM is the multiple that the smaller number divides without leaving a remainder. Divide both numbers by any common factor, ( then ). Continue until there are no more common factors. Note: and, the results of the last division have no common factors. The LCM equals the product of the factors, ( and ) and the remaining quotients, ( and ). Find the prime factors of each the given numbers. Write each number as a product of primes using exponents, if required. LCM equals the product of all the factors to the highest power. 0
