## Step 1

We can"t add two fountain with various denominators (the bottom number). So you need to obtain a usual denominator - both bottom numbers should match. To do this, you"ll multiply the denominators times every other... However the numerators need to change, too. They acquire multiplied by the *other* term"s denominator.

You are watching: 1/2 plus 2/3

So us multiply 1 by 3, and also get 3, then we multiply 2 through 3 and get 6.

Do the same for the 2nd term. We multiply 2 through 2, and get 4, then multiply 2 by 3 and get 6.

So currently our fountain look like this:

36 |

6 |

## Step 2

Since our platform match, us can include the numerators.

3 + 4 = 7

So the price is:

76 |

## Step 3

Last of all, we have to simplify the fraction, if possible. Can it be reduced to a less complicated fraction?

To discover out, we try dividing it by 2...

No good. So next you shot the following prime number, i m sorry is 3...

No good. So following you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 5...

No good. So next you try the following prime number, i m sorry is 7...

No good. 7 is bigger than 6. For this reason we"re done reducing.

And we"re done! Here"s the last answer to 1/2 + 2/312 |
