In this lesson, the Jealousy Method of adding fractions with unlike denominators is demonstrated through several examples. The method involves factoring the denominators and finding the least common denominator. Numerators are left unfactored and added or subtracted according to the operation given. The importance of prime factorization and canceling out common factors is also discussed.
