### Subject: Basic Math

How can a denominator change to become the same number when adding fractions? So if 1/4+1/8 have different denominators, how can they have the same denominator?

A person can change the denominator of the number by simply multiplying the 4 in the equation above to 2. Multiplying the 4x2 = 8. So the denominator can change from 1/4-1/8. However, the 1 also needs to change to 2. If we multiply the denominator by 2, we also need to multiply the numerator by 2. The fraction changes to 2/8. So we can add 2/8+1/8=3/8.

How might the population growth of China decrease by the year 2030?

The population growth of China might decrease by the year 2030 because of the one Child Policy the government instituted back in 1960. The government wanted to control the population because it was rapidly increasing. The policy was put out by Chairman Mao, who decided that each family can have only one child. If the family wanted more children, they can pay tax. However, the population growth might decrease because these children who were born under the one child policy will be adults by the year 2030. When that happens, the population will be less.
