    1/3+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

    First, 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.
