Adding 3 fractions with unlike denominators worksheets

    This fraction worksheet is great for practising adding 3 fractions with unlike denominators problems. The problems may be selected for different degrees of difficulty. The easiest will have a set of denominators or 2,4,6,8. The hardest will keep the denominators between 1 and 25 and the common denominators under 120. The way to solve the adding fraction problems is first find the common denominator for all 3 fractions and adjust the three fractions. The next step is to add the numerators. Then check to see if you need to simplify. When you have not set the 'Max Sum is 1' option then you have to check if the fraction is an improper fraction. If this is the case, you have to convert the improper fraction into a mixed number.
