Adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators is probably the easiest type of math you could do with fractions because all you have to do is add/subtract the numerators because the denominator is brought in the answer as it is. So let's take the two fractions

__2/7+4/7__and put it in vertical form like this:__2__

__4__

7 + 7

And now all you have to do is add the two numerators 2+4 and we know the answer is 6 and so all we have to do is write the numerator and bring the denominator as it is like this:

__2__

__4__

__6__

7 + 7 = 7

So now we have our answer to our problem 2/7+4/7 which is 6/7.

Now let's take the problem

__5/8-3/8__and let's subtract and you should know that subtracting is the same as adding except you only subtract the numerators like this:__5__

__3__

__2__

8 - 8 = 8

So now we know that the answer is 2/8 of the problem 5/8-3/8 and if you want you can simplify it and make it 1/4.
