__Properties of Addition of Fractions__- We can add fractions in any order.

Example: 1/8 + 2/9 = 2/9 + 1/8

- Addition of 0 to a fraction results in fraction itself.

Example: 0 + 4/15 = 4/15

9/17 + 0 = 9/17

- We can add three given fractions by adding first two fractions and then adding the resultant sum to the third fraction.

Example: 1/3 + 2/4 + 7/12

Add 1/3 and 2/4 first and then add the resultant sum to 7/12

__Properties of Subtraction of Fractions__- Subtraction of 0 from any fraction results in fraction itself.

Example: 1/8 – 0 = 1/8
