## Add and Subtract Fractions

** I can add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators and mixed numbers. 5.NF.1**

*5th graders are expected to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)*
