Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08+8=16+8=24+8=32+8=40 5+5=10+5=15+5=20+5=25+5=30+5=40 they meet at 40 or 8*5 that is now our new denominator, but we have to change numerators so they are equivalent 5/8 = 25/40 i multiplied both top and bottom by 5 6/5 = 48/40 multiply top and bottom by 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once you have the new fractions with same denominator just add the top numbers 25 + 48 = 73 = 73/40

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you have to just multiply the bottom numbers, that will always give you a common denominator
