Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now you have to multiply the fractions by 1 in other forms to change them. multiply 1/6 by 4/4 and mulitply 3/8 by 3/3.\[\frac{ 1\times4 }{ 6\times4 }+\frac{ 3\times3 }{ 8\times3 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the reason this works is because once the two values are expressed with a common denominator, that fraction can be factored out. it leaves a simple addition of whole numbers which can be added and then multipled by the factor to yield a single value: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }+\frac{ 3 }{ 8 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }\cdot \frac{ 4 }{ 4 }+\frac{ 3 }{ 8 }\cdot \frac{ 3 }{ 3 }=\frac{ 4 }{ 24}+\frac{ 9 }{ 24 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 24 }\left( 4+9 \right)=\frac{ 1 }{ 24 }\left( 13 \right)=\frac{ 13 }{ 24 }\]
