    In order to add, the denominators must be the same. So find the LCD(least common denominator). Both denominators go into 6. So: 5/6 = 5/6 2/3 = ?/6 3 multiplied by 2 equals 6, so multiply 2(the numerator) by 2: 2/3 = 4/6 Now add 5/6 + 4/6 = 10/6 Change into a mixed number: 6 goes into 10 ONE time with 4 left over so: 1 4/6 simplified is: \[1\frac{ 2 }{3 }\]
