i thought you had to multiply the two denominators together then add the numerators then you simplify it

kiara, you are correct. You can multiply the two denominators to give you a common denominator. 8*2 = 16. Therefore 1/2 = (1/2)*(8/8) = 8/16 2/8 = (2/8)*(2/2) =4/16 1/2 + 2/8 = 8/16 + 4/16 = 12/16 Then simplifying 12/16 = (4/4) * 3/4 = 3/4 Thus 3/4 is the correct answer, not 3/8.
