**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 7:40pm2 1/2 + 3 1/4 + 3 5/8

First you need to find the common denominator -- which is 8.

Then convert each fraction to the common denominator.

2 1/2 = 2 4/8

3 1/4 = 3 2/8

Add:

2 4/8 + 3 2/8 + 3 5/8

What do you get?

**adore001**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 7:59pmHi Sue,

Thanks for responding so promptly. After adding the problem I got 8 11/8 but my answer isn't one of the multiple choices. What am I doing wrong now? The multiple choices are 10 3/8, 9 3/8, 7 3/8 or 8 3/8. Thanks again for your help.

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 8:03pmYour answer of 8 11/8 is right. But you need to reduce or simplify it.

8 11/8 = 9 3/8
