# Adding Fractions = Think `1/2`

Whenever you see the word fractions think of `1/2`

The **fractured** (fraction) rock was split in **half** ( `1/2` )

To remember how to calculate fractions always think of a `1/2` and work it out from there:

From this you can use logic and ask yourself how do you get from `1/2+1/2` to equal 1

It must be: `(1+1)/2=2/2=1`

But there is an additional help on adding and subtracting; see following page “If adding is your aim.”
