Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remove the parenthesis giving 3/42/3+1/2+1/3 You can combine those fractions that have a common denominator the 2/3 and the 1/3 becomes 1/3 Now the combining is of 3/41/3+1/2 find the LCD for 4, 3, and 2. This can be solved by multiplying the 4 and 3 (as 2 is already contained in the 4) Now the fractions are 9/124/12+6/12=15/124/12=11/12, the denominator is 12 and 11/12 is in its simplest terms.
