You need to find GCF to make the denominators the same

@benlindquist it's not that simple

- anonymous

1/6=2/12

- anonymous

now add

- benlindquist

so the gcf and the add the top and then reduce

- ♪Chibiterasu

?

- ♪Chibiterasu

You need to find the GCF and then use it to convert 1/6 so that it has a denominator of 12.

- anonymous

is it 8/12

- benlindquist

reduce

- ♪Chibiterasu

No it is not

- ♪Chibiterasu

Find the GCF of 6 and 12. Do you know how to do that?

- anonymous

no

- ♪Chibiterasu

LCM*
I meant LCM not gcf

- ♪Chibiterasu

Actually a simpler way to do it would be to just divide the denominators.

- anonymous

least common denominator

- ♪Chibiterasu

What do you get when you divide 12 by 6?

- anonymous

2

- ♪Chibiterasu

Now multiply that into both numbers in 1/6

Find the Least Common Denominator (LCD) of 1/6,7/12
Method 1: By Listing Multiples
List out all multiples of each denominator, and find the first common one.
6 : 6,12
12 : 12
Therefore, the LCD is 12
Method 2: By Prime Factors
List all prime factors of each denominator, and find the union of these primes.
6 : 2,3
12 : 2,2,3
Therefore, the LCD is 2×2×3=12
Make the denominators the same as the LCD
1×2/6×2 +7/12
Simplify. Denominators are now the same
2/12+7/12
Join the denominators
2+7/12
Simplify
9/12=?

\[\frac{ 1 \times 2 }{ 6 \times 2 } = \frac{ ? }{ ? }\]

Or you could just interrupt me and do everything for em that works too

- anonymous

2/12

- anonymous

hello

- anonymous

so what is the ansswer

- Crystal_Bliss

nope thats wrong it would be 3/4 because if you simplify 9/12 and 3 fits in to 9 3 times and for 12 3 goes into 12 4 time so your answer would be 3/4. do you see how i did that?

- anonymous

but i dont want it in the simpeliest form

- Crystal_Bliss

ok the answer is 3/4 but if you do not need it in simplest form than your answer would be 9/12.

- anonymous

thank you very much crystal

- anonymous

and what grade are you in ?

- Crystal_Bliss

hbu?

- anonymous

oh im in 5th

- Crystal_Bliss

nice so your still learning =}
