In this adding and subtracting fractions worksheet, students solve 5 sets of problems related to the adding and subtracting of fractions. First, they identify that each fraction has a common denominator and then simplify by adding or subtracting. Then, students factor each denominator into its simplest form and find the LCD of all denominators. They also divide the LCD by each denominator and multiply the result by the numerator and solve the equation.
