    So to add or subtract fractions, you should always start by converting them both so they both have the least common denominator. Do you know what that is?

    It seems you just want an answer? Well think about this: 5/8 AND 4/5 are BOTH bigger than 1/2 so how can adding TWO numbers BOTH of which are bigger than 1/2 equal one half?

    You should NOT ask questions for a quiz in OpenStudy - that's one of the rules.

    Not at all, I just need to learn how to do this problem, I have a website that I can basically put the problem in and it will do it for ome but I need to figure it out before I can do that.

    Wolf, this isn't a test. It is online credit recovery, the person who runs it encourages you to look up the answers, I am asking for help on it, not asking for answers.

    Okay The lowest common denominator is 40 5/8 = 25/40 4/5 = 32/40 25/40 + 32/40 = 57/40 = 1 + 17/40

    Ok I figured it out, all I had to do was add both the fractions and get the answer in simplest form. I got a 90 on the test. Thanks
