Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we need to make all the denominators (the bottom numbers) the same. 4 * 21 = 84 7 * 12 = 84 6 * 14 = 84

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That doesn't make any sense. Well 1 1/4 is the closest, so go with that.
