You are cutting vegetables for a party. You have 1/4 lb of carrots, 2/7 lb of broccoli, and 5/6 lb of peppers. How many pounds of vegetables do you have in all?

    So basically you are adding all of the together. 1/4 + 2/7 + 5/6 Since they all have different denominators, you have to find a common one.

    What number will multiples of each of those numbers go into?

    So we need to make all the denominators (the bottom numbers) the same. 4 * 21 = 84 7 * 12 = 84 6 * 14 = 84

    Now you need to multiply the numerators (the top numbers) times the same number you multiplied against the denominator. So 1*21, 2*12, 5*14... What do you get?

    Did you add them all together? the denominator should be 84

    If you added them all together you would get 115/84. That come out to 1 31/84, which in decimals would approx. equal 1.37

    That doesn't make any sense. Well 1 1/4 is the closest, so go with that.
