    You just find the common denominator for each fraction, and then add across

    Ok so since your fractions already have common denominators (5) you can just add across. Add the whole numbers (7+8)= 15 then add the numerators of your fractions (4+4)=8

    This gives you 15 8/5 but because you started with a mixed fraction you should end up with one for your answer. 16 3/5 is the answer

    Do you know how to change a mixed number into an improper fraction?
