The LCD (lowest common denominator) is the lowest common denominator of two or more fractions. 4 = 2² 16 = 2⁴ 8 = 2³ Take common and non-common factors with highest exponent. So LCD = 16 The new dneominator of all fractions is 16. Divide this number for the original denominators and multiply for numerator... 16/4 = 4 4*3 = 12 3/4 = 12/16 16/16 = 1 1*7 = 7 7/16 = 7/16 16/8 = 2 2*5 = 10 5/8 = 10/16
