Multiplicative inverses. That's a mouthful! Really, this term just refers to numbers that when multiplied together equal 1. These numbers are also called reciprocals of each other! Learn about multiplicative inverses by watching this tutorial.
Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators doesn't have to be a nightmare. Just find a common denominator and everything calms down! See how to keep your fraction subtraction calm with this tutorial.
Subtracting fractions with like denominators? Just subtract the numerators and put the result over the common denominator! To see this process in action, check out this tutorial!
Working with mixed fractions in equations can be tough, but things get easier if you convert them into improper fractions first. Once you learn this skill, you'll find yourself using it all the time, so take look at how to convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction.
This tutorial gives you some practice finding a common denominator and the least common denominator of three fractions. There's only one least common denominator, but there are many common denominators. This tutorial gives you one. Can you find another?
Working with fractions can be intimidating, but if you arm yourself with the right tools, you'll find that working with fractions is no harder than working with basic numbers. In this tutorial you'll see the process for multiplying 3 very simple fractions. Enjoy!
Trying to add fractions with unlike denominators? You're going to need a common denominator first! Follow along with this tutorial and see what you need to do to add these fractions together.
Fractions come in all sorts of flavors, and in this tutorial you'll learn how to recognize mixed numbers.

Multiplying a whole number and a fraction can be confusing, but this tutorial helps to sort things out. Check it out!
While adding fractions can be hard, adding fractions with the same denominator is just as easy as adding numbers. That's why when you add fractions you first get all of them to have the same denominator, and then add them up. In this tutorial you get to see just how easy it is to add up fractions once they have the same denominator!
Numerators and denominators are the key ingredients that make fractions, so if you want to work with fractions, you have to know what numerators and denominators are. Lucky for you, this tutorial will teach you some great tricks for remembering what numerators and denominators are all about.
Complex fractions are, well, complex. But if you watch this tutorial, you'll see how to make these complex fractions much simpler!
Ever wondered what makes complex fractions so complex? Check out this video tutorial and wonder no more :)
When you divide fractions, the trick is to rewrite division as a multiplication. But the truth is that you can always rewrite division as a multiplication, and in this tutorial you'll see the rule that makes that possible!
Complex fractions can be pretty complex. Luckily, you can simplify a complex fraction to make it much easier to work with. See how in this tutorial!
Reciprocals are important when it comes to dividing fractions, finding perpendicular lines, dealing with inverse proportions, and so much more! In this tutorial you can review the basics about reciprocals.
In math, it's often important to change a fraction from one type to another. It can help you work with the fraction in an equation or help make more sense of an answer. This tutorial shows you how to convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction.
Fractions involving large numbers can be a handful, but sometimes these fractions can be reduced, taking those large numbers off your hands. This tutorial shows you how to reduce a fraction to its simplest form. Take a look!
Ordering fractions from least to greatest? Don't have common denominators? You could find the least common denominator (LCD) of the fractions and write equivalent fractions with this LCD. Then, compare the numerators to figure out their order from least to greatest! This tutorial shows you how!
Ordering fractions from least to greatest? Don't have common denominators? Find a common denominator by multiplying the denominators together. Use that common denominator to create equivalent fractions. Then, compare the numerators to figure out which is bigger! This tutorial shows you how!
Finding equivalent fractions is an important part of things like adding, subtracting, and comparing fractions. But what are they? In this tutorial, you'll learn that equivalent fractions are just fractions that have the same value, even though they may look very different! Take a look at equivalent fractions by watching this tutorial!
Adding mixed fractions? If they have common denominators, then you can add the whole numbers and fractions separately. In this tutorial, take a look at adding together mixed fractions!
Subtracting mixed fractions? If they have common denominators, then you can subtract the whole numbers and fractions separately. In this tutorial, take a look at subtracting mixed fractions!
