    1.The number on the top is called a numerator and the bottom number is denominator.
    2.It’s not okay to have fraction with zero underneath
    3.Multiply the whole number part by the number of the fractions and then add that top part of the fraction.
    4.turn the second fraction upside down the multiply them.
    5.You have to get the bottom halves of the two fractions be the same then you can subtract them.
