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:

3
6
+4
6

Step 2

Since our platform match, us can include the numerators.

3 + 4 = 7

So the price is:

7
6

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 + 2/31
2
+2
3
=7
6
