I have 10/21 of a cake left over from the party. Then I give 6/21 of a cake to my sisters. What fraction of a cake do I have left over? 5/21


⅓ + ⅔ = 3/3

¾ + ¾ = 1 2/4

⅕ + ⅗ = 4/5

⅘ - ⅗ = ⅕

5/10 - 1/10 = 4/10

55/60 - 40/60 =15/60

12/20 + 17/20 = 19/20


Have a go at these!

½ + 3/4 =  1 1/4

2/6 + ⅔ = 1

⅕ + 2/10 =  ⅖

2/6 + 4/12 = 4/6

2/5 + 3/15 = 6/6

1/9 + 1/18 = 3/18

2/9 + 4/18 = 8/18
