What is 1/8 of £20.00?

# Level 5-6 Numbers - Fractions - Addition and Subtraction

Addition and subtraction seem easy, right? But KS3 Maths likes to challenge us! This quiz dives into adding and subtracting fractions.

Adding and subtracting fractions isn't as tricky as it seems. Just find their lowest common multiple and give both fractions that denominator. You can only add and subtract if the fractions share the same denominator. That's the number below the line. Fractions have two parts – numerators (the top or first number) and denominators (the bottom or second number).
