Step 1: We are adding 2/6 and 6/8. First we need to make our models.
Step 2: Then you need to combine the two models to make one big model.
Step 3: Next you need to shade in 2/6 and 6/8 on the same model.
Step 4: For your denominator you need to count all the squares. For your numerator you count the squares that over lap.
Step 5: Then you need to simplify from your answer 12/48 to 2/8 and that simplifies to 1/4.
