This lesson provides an easy method for adding two fractions with different denominators. By using the diagonal method, where you multiply the diagonals and add them together, and the least common denominator, you can quickly and easily add two fractions. While this method works for all fractions, it's best to use it when the denominators do not have a common factor, and it cannot be used with mixed numbers. Additionally, the lesson touches upon reducing fractions and the importance of paying attention to the greatest common factor.
