You know how to add fractions so don't tell me you don't know what to do next

7. mercedies

8. Hero

If you don't know how to add fractions, then you shouldn't be working on this type of problem.

can you please help me i dont understand last year i feel asleep in class and this is my first year doing homeschool so know i have to learn this...

To add fractions, you have to first make sure the denominators are the same. In this case, they're already the same, so we can combine them: (9+3)/8 w = 26 12w/8 = 26 12w = 8*26 4(3)w = 4(2*26) 3w = 52 w = 52/3
