The only way you can add or subtract fractions is if they have the same denominator.
Think of money. A half dollar is the same as 50 cents, right?
Think of a pizza. If you divide it into 10 equal pieces, and eat 5 of them, you've eaten 1/2 a pizza.
Study this site carefully.
I hope that makes it clearer.
5/10 + 1/10 = 6/10
