We are going to learn how to add fractions.
We are going to this problem.
Now you need to find the Least Common Multiple or LCM. Which is 9.
Now we need to take 14/3 times 3. Because 3x3 equals 9.
Make sure you take both 14 and 3 times 3.
You do not need to do anything with 13/9. Because now we have common denominators.
Now we add them together. Which equals 55/9. DO NOT add the denominators.
Since 55/9 is an improper fraction, basically meaning a strong man on top of a baby. (Big number on top of a little number) we need to make a MIXED NUMBER.
To make a MIXED NUMBER we need to see how many times the numerator can go into the denominator. So 55 can go into 9, six times, your whole number is 6.
Since 55 can't go into 9 evenly, we need to see how many is left over. Which is one so our fraction part of the MIXED NUMBER. So that part is 1/9.
So we put that all together your answer is 6 1/9.😃
Now you know how to add fractions.
