    To find common denominators

    you may take each denominator and provide the acceptable factors.

    factors of 3: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 ... ETC

    factors of 4: 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 ... ETC

    Note that they both have a common number of 12

    So you will multiply the 1st fraction by 4 and the 2nd by 3

    4 (1/3) = 4/12

    3 (1/4) = 3/12

    no need for the last part unless if you are proceeding with different properties.

    12 because if u multiply 3*4 it is 12 and 4*3 is 12 so they both have 12 in common.
