no. make them improper fractions by taking away the whole number. So the first mixed number would turn into 46/3 and the second one would turn into 19/2

ifunfrank Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ummm, i guess you should turn it back into a mixed number since the problem was given to you as a mixed number

ifunfrank Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
mmm, no. the your answer for the mixed number is incorrect

or, just ignore the fraction first, add the whole numbers then add the fractions.

converting them to improper form is unnecessary and tedious. just do (159) + [(1/3)  (1/2)]

Algebraically, you can say: let a = first constant let b = first fraction let c = second constant let d = second fraction (ac) + (bd)

ok but wouldn't you have to make 1/3 and 1/2 make the denominators 6
