yes, I would

Alright, and it is also the same as \[12+9+\frac{5}{8}+\frac{2}{3}\]right?

Lets look at JUST \[\frac{5}{8}+\frac{2}{3}\]

alright! (:

So make the bottom numbers the same with simple algebra!

so 15/24 + 16/24?

\[\frac{5}{8}*1=\frac{5}{8}*\frac{3}{3}=\frac{5*3}{8*3}=\frac{15}{24}\]

You see how that helps?
\[\frac{2}{3}*1=\frac{2}{3}*\frac{8}{8}=\frac{2*8}{3*8}=\frac{16}{24}\]

Now its easier too add.

So 21 31/24?

Yep, but 31/24 doesn't look good. What else can it be?

reduce it?

Go ahead and show me what you get, if you want. Or we can work it out together.

Yeah I have no idea what a compound number is...

Another example is like\[5\frac{3}{4}\]

31/24 is greater than 1, so it can be a whole number plus a fraction.

So there is 1 whole number in 31/24.

\[21+\frac{31}{24}=21+1+\frac{7}{24}=22+\frac{7}{24}=22\frac{7}{24}\]

thank you so much!

You're welcome. I hope you can do the problem on your own now!
