Mick, try this one like how we did the last... but instead of having to change one fraction, you have to find a number that both 3 and 4 go into, then multiply the fractions by the appropriate number to get common denominators.

- anonymous

its 12 rigth

- anonymous

yes you can use 12. Now what will your two fractions be after you make them common?

will the top number be 4 n 3

- anonymous

no... but you have the idea... you now have common denominators of 12. what do woul would you multiply 2/3 by to get 12 on the bottom and then what would you multiply 3/4 by to get 12 on the bottom? Remember... you multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number.

- anonymous

it would be 4 3 beac they go into 12 4 3

- anonymous

right... now multiply the numerators by those numbers to get the new fractions with a denominator of 12. What are your two new fractions?

- anonymous

12 times 4 and3

- anonymous

can you please just give me the answe and how u did it cuz i have to go to bed i dont wanna have a f

- anonymous

ok, i'll help you out... to get a common denominator of 12... you would have to multiply the numerator and denominator of 2/3 by 4 to give you 8/12. You would then also have to multiply the numerator and denominator of 3/4 by 3 to give you 9/12. Then you would add 8/12 + 9/12 to give you 17/12 or 1_5/12
