Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/3+1/6 we need to make the denominators equal the easiest way to do that is by multiplying the fraction 1/3 by 2 so now we have 2/6+1/6 then we just add normally

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, find the common denominator (the number on the bottom of the fraction). In this case, the common denominator of 3 and 6 is 6, because 3x2 equals 6, and 6x1 can also equal 6. 6 is your common denominator, or GCF. 1/3 = something/6 How do you find the top number? Well, to get 6, you had to multiply 3 by 2. To get your top number, multiplt 1 by 2 as well. So you have: 1/3= 2/6. Since we only had to multiply 1/6 by 1 to get the common denomintor, it virtually stays the same. Now we add 1/6 and 2/6 to get 3/6, which can be simplified to 1/2.
