A. 10/24 C. 1 11/24

B. 25/24 D. 1 1/2

would you add 2/24, 3/24, and 5/24

which equals 10/24 but I don't understand the lowest terms.

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 3:19pmThe common denominator is 24 -- so

2/3 = 16/24

3/8 = 9/24

5/12 = 10/24

16/24 + 9/24 + 10/24 = 35/24 = 1 11/24

This site explains lowest terms.
