Hi Selena;
You said you required five solutions.  I would like to offer another.
4/5=6/15+8/20
 
6/15...both the numerator and denominator are divisible by 3.
8/20...both the numerator and denominator are divisible by 4.
 
4/5=2/5+2/5
 
The numerator is the number on top.
The denominator is the number on the bottom.
