Since 3 is evenly separated by 12, we can multiply simply one term to obtain a typical denominator.

You are watching: 1 3/4 plus 1 3/4

Multiply 1 by 4, and get 4, then us multiply 3 by 4 and get 12.

*

So currently our fractions look prefer this:

4
12
+4
12

Step 2

Since our denominators match, us can add the numerators.

4 + 4 = 8

Now we have actually an answer.

8
12

Step 3

Last the all, we have to simplify the fraction, if possible. Have the right to it be lessened to a simpler fraction?

To discover out, we shot dividing that by 2...

Are both the numerator and the denominator evenly divisible by 2? Yes! for this reason we reduce it:

8
12
÷ 2 =4
6

So much so good... Let"s shot to division by that number again.

Are both the numerator and also the denominator same divisible by 2? Yes! therefore we alleviate it:

4
6
÷ 2 =2
3

So far so good... Let"s try to divide by that number again.

No good. So next you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 3...

No good. 3 is larger than 2. Therefore we"re done reducing.

And we"re done! Here"s the final answer come 1/3 + 4/12
1
3
+4
12
=2
3
