create a common denominator, then add together
look for a number that both 4 and 6 divide into
protip: multiply 4 and 6 together, and start there

Find The LCD (Least Common Denominator) Example:
4, 8, (12), 16
6, (12), 18
In This Case The LCD Is 12.
Then, Since 4 Is Multiplied By 3, You Will Multiply 3 x 3 And Since 6 Is Multiplied By 2 It Will Be 5 x 2 To Get The Numerator.

Can you write out your new equation with a common denominator?

for instance, 3/4 = 9/12, right?
multiply 3 and 4 by 3.
3*3 = 9
4*3 = 12
therefore, 9/12
5/6, to make this over 12 you have to multiply by 2
10/12
so you now have 9/12 + 10/12

3/4 + 5/6
6*4 = 24 (new denominator)
3 * 6 = 18
5*4 = 20
18/24 + 20/24 = 38/24 = 19/12

1 and 7/12 then
reason being, if you have 19/12
that is 12/12 + 7/12, or 1 + 7/12

1 7/12 = 19/12
Subject 12 from 19 to take 1 out, which leaves 7/12ths
