Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, very odd! I think its saying like what ways is it easier to compute the sum of two fractions than to compute the product of the same two fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0adding involves multiplying when the denominators aren't the same so i guess it easier to add fractions when they have same denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i would say it is to add two fractions with them same denominator than to multiply these two fractions (for really big numbers in the denominator)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The sum of two fractions would be easier to computer than the product of the same two fractions when the two fractions have the same denominators....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is still easy to multiply numbers with the same denominators when the numbers are small l
