Fractions Rap

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
