Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0get a common denominator. the first part is to look at 2 and 6. since you can get 6 by multiplying 2 by 3 you can work it so take 1/2 and multiply by 3/3 which is 1 which doesn't change the fraction at all. 1/2*3/3 = 3/6 then 3/6  2/6 = 1/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this one requires a little more work. you have to figure the common denominator which will be the least common multiple between 3 and 4. if you notice that 3*4 = 12 and then see that no other number less than 12 is divisible by BOTH 3 and 4, you have found it. (if you use a bigger number than 12 divisible by both 3 and 4, it is ok since you can factor out at the end!) so then 3/4 * 3/3 = 9/12 and 2/3 *4/4 = 8/12 so 8/12 + 9/12 = 17/12 you cannot factor anymore so this is the answer. unless the problem says you cant have improper fractions then this is ok

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so its the same thing a commone denominator between 12 and 6. well you know that 6*2 = 12 so this works we have 1/6 *2/2 = 2/12 so 11/122/12 = 9/12 now notice you can factor the numerator and denominator to get 3*3 / 3*4 and cancel a set of 3's and we are left with 3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0common denominator is 12. 5/6*2/2 = 10/12 3/4*3/3 = 9/12 10/12 + 9/12 = 19/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha maybe ok so common denominator between 2 and 8 is 8 so 2*4 = 8 so 1/2 * 4/4 = 4/8 then 4/8 + 7/8 = 11/8 or 1 3/8
