What is the best way to add fractions and reduced them to the lowest terms example 3/8+1/3+5/6

First, find the lowest common denominator. What does 8, 3, and 6 go into evenly? Let's take the largest number  8. Multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32 . . .
Which of those numbers can be divided evenly by 8, 3, and 6?
Did you get 24?
Next  divide 24 by the denominators in each fraction.
24/8 = 3
Multiply your answer by the numerator.
3 * 3 = 9
3/8 = 9/24
1/3 = 8/24
5/6 = 20/24
9/24 + 8/24 + 20/24
Add the numerators
9/24 + 8/24 + 20/24 = 37/24
Divide 37 by 24 to get the lowest term.
37/24 = 1 13/24
