**Answer Key **

**1. D**

A common denominator is needed, number which both 3 and 12 will divide into. So, 8+5/12 = 13/12 = 1 1/12

**2. C
**A common denominator is needed, number which both 5 and 10 will divide into. So, 6+7/10 = 13/10 = 1 3/10

**3. D**

A common denominator is needed, number which both 4 and 16 will divide into. So, 4+11/16 = 15/16

**4. A**

A common denominator is needed, number which both 15 and 10 will divide into. So 14-9/30 = 5/30 = 1/6

**5. D**

Since the denominators are the same, we can just subtract the numerators, so 17-15/23 = 2/23

**6. A**

Since there are common numerators and denominators to cancel out, we cancel out 15/16 x 8/9 to get 5/2 x 1/3, and then we multiply numerators and denominators to get 5/6

**7. D
**Since there are no common numerators and denominators to cancel out, we simply multiply the numerators and then the denominators. So 3 x 5/4 x 11 = 15/44

**8. A**

To divide fractions, we multiply the first fraction with the inverse of the second fraction. Therefore we have 5/8 x 3/2, = 15/16

**9. D**

To divide fractions, we multiply the first fraction with the inverse of the second fraction. Therefore we have 2/15 x 5/4, (cancel out) = 1/3 x ½ = 1/6

**10. C
**11/20 x 20/9 = 11/1 x 1/9 = 11/9 = 1 2/9

for number 1, how does 13/12= 11/12 ?

yes you are correct – it appears to be 11/12 but is 1 1/12 (no space)!
