    if you don't know you could just multiply top and bottom by 2*7*9 (which is actually the lcm in this case of 2 and 7 and 9)

    \[\frac{2 \cdot 7 \cdot 9 \cdot \frac{1}{2}}{2 \cdot 7 \cdot 9 \cdot \frac{3}{7}+2 \cdot 7 \cdot 9 \cdot \frac{1}{9}}\]

    so you ever have trouble thinking of the lcm you could just multiply the bottoms together of the mini-fractions this may be a multiple of the lcm but it will work you just might have to reduce some in the end
