fraction is a part of a whole telling you this from the depth of my soul don’t let this confuse your head all you need to know is what I just said top number is the number where we start called the numerator, this is the part denominator is the number below this is the whole, am I goin’ to slow**Chorus:**fraction is a part of a whole telling you this from the depth of my soul going to use this even when you’re old ok now we’re on a roll fractions are easy to multiply listen up now gonna tell you why if you wanna do it just the right way then you gotta listen to what I say multiply the top called the numerators multiply the bottom called the denominators don’t forget to simplify when you’re done ‘cuz multiplying fractions can be mad fun dividing is more of the same flip the second fraction, don’t be lame change the operation to multiply now you know what to do, don’t ask why

**Chorus**at this next part you really gotta think for adding fractions you’re gonna have to link the two together with a common denom add the top only man ain’t this the bomb subtracting is pretty much the same way as adding you heard what I say subtract the top and remain calm as long as you found the common denom if your answer is an improper fraction you’re not finished you gotta take some action to a mixed number you gotta change back and simplify to lowest terms c’mon don’t slack

**Chorus**an improper fraction you know how to figure bottom is small and the top is bigger remember that the line means divide gotta do long division can’t let you slide what you got left is the numerator divisor will be you denominator add it to the whole and now it’s all fixed simplify, you got a number that’s mixed not sure how to simplify find a common multiple gonna tell you why reduce that fraction to lowest terms better do this or else get burned

**Chorus**
