• Whereas before you add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators, you must first of all find equivalent fractions with the same denominator
Example:
Find the LCM of both fractions;
5/6  +  1/3   (LCM of 6 and 3 is 6)
Divide the LCM by the denominator of each fraction. Get the result, and then multiply by the numerator.     →     5/6 + 2/6
When the results of the fractions have been gotten, then you can now add or subtract those results normally to obtain your final answer.
Your new answer will now be the numerator, while the found LCM will be the denominator.
So,    5/6  +  2/6  =  7/6
