In this video you will learn about "Adding and Subtracting Similar Fractions" by MathoGuide

Adding and subtracting similar (like) fractions is straightforward because they have the same denominator. Here's how you can do it:

### Adding Similar Fractions

1. **Keep the denominator the same**.

2. **Add the numerators**.

3. **Simplify the fraction if necessary**.

For example, to add 3/8 and 2/8

3/8 + 2/8

= (3 + 2)/8

= 5/8

### Subtracting Similar Fractions

1. **Keep the denominator the same**.

2. **Subtract the numerators**.

3. **Simplify the fraction if necessary**.

For example, to subtract 5/9 from 7/9

7/9 - 5/9

=(7 - 5)/9

= 2/9
