Solving Rational Numbers

For solving rational numbers we need to remember that what type of operations
we can perform with them. We can perform many operations on rational number
like Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.

For Addition following points we need to remember: * If the denominator of both
the given number are same than the denominator of their numbers will be same
we just need to add the numerators and we can obtain the result.

* If the denominator of both the given number are different than we just need to
convert them to equivalent denominator and than just follow point number one.
We can also equalize the denominator with the help of LCM.

For subtraction following points we need to remember

* If the denominators of both the number are same then than denominator of
their numbers will be same we just need subtract the numerator to obtain the
result.

* If the denominator of both the given number are different than we just need to
convert them to equivalent denominator and than just follow point number one.
For multiplication following points we need to remember:

* It is the simplest operation we just need to multiply numerator with numerator
and denominator with denominator. For division following points we need to
remember:

* Division also follow multiplication rules just the difference is we have to
multiply first number with the reciprocal of the second. Important points in
operation of rational numbers:

Two rational numbers whose products are 1 are called reciprocal of each other.
Two rational numbers whose sum is 0 is called additive inverse of each other.

Be careful with the mixed fractions and improper fraction they can create big
problem while you are performing any operation on rational numbers.

We can also solve rational number with the help of fractions. By performing
these two operations we can simplify any type of rational number.
