## How do you find the missing numerator or denominator?

To find a missing numerator, look at the denominators of the fractions. One fraction has both a numerator and denominator. Find the number that this denominator is multiplied by to get to the denominator that is missing its numerator. Multiply the known numerator by this number to find the unknown numerator.

**How do you find the missing value of a fraction?**

### How do you find the missing numerator when adding fractions?

Lesson Summary Finding a missing number within an addition or a subtraction number sentence starts with making sure the answer and the first two fractions have the same denominator. To do this, we multiply both the numerator and denominator of the answer by the number that would make the denominators the same.

**How do you find a denominator?**

To find a common denominator, multiply each part of a fraction by the denominator of the other fraction. For example, to find a common denominator for 1/3 + 2/5, multiply the 1 and 3 by 5 and multiply the 2 and 5 by 3. You should get 5/15 + 6/15. Then you can calculate the fractions.
