Okay 5/9 + 7/9

I know you change the denominator so

5/6 = 15/18 or 3/18

7/9 = 14/18 or 2/18

which one?

You only change the denominator when they are not the same. You don't need to change anything about those fractions -- except simplify your answer.

which is 29/18 and so I change it to a mixed number?

Right. And then simplify.
