You need to make the denominators the same! The other denominator is  4 so we did 4x2=8. Now the denominators are the same.

You need to make the denominators the same! The other denominator is 4 so we did 4x2=8. Now the denominators are the same.

Whatever you do to the denominator you have to do to the numerator. So we did 2x2 and that equaled 4! So now we have 4/8 + 3/8=?

Whatever you do to the denominator you have to do to the numerator. So we did 2x2 and that equaled 4! So now we have 4/8 + 3/8=?

Then we take 4+3 and get 7 for our numerator!

Then we take 4+3 and get 7 for our numerator!

So if our denominators are the same we keep it the same even if we add the two numerators.

So if our denominators are the same we keep it the same even if we add the two numerators.

So now our final answer is 7/8.

So now our final answer is 7/8.
