Solving problems with rational numbers in fraction form

Solving problems with rational numbers in fraction form

Similar to the previous section, we will practice adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing rational numbers. Rational numbers can be expressed in two forms: fraction form and decimal form. This time, we will deal with rational numbers in fraction form.
