### How is adding like fractions and adding unlike fractions the same?

Adding fractions is achieved by adding the numerators as long as
the denominators are the same. When the denominators are the same
the fractions are "like fractions".
With different denominators they are "unlike fractions"; to be
able to add them they need to be converted in to equivalent
fractions with the same denominators. They are then "like
fractions" and can be added.
