    How do you find common denominators?? If you find yourself asking this question, this is a MUST watch. A topic that is often difficult for students to understand. A lesson you must watch if you want to compare fractions, or add/subtract fractions (finding the lowest common denominator). Great also if you are reviewing for a standardized test in which you will need to deal with fractions!
