Imagine a pizza cut into 4 equal pieces. Each piece is 1/4 of the pizza.

If you cut each of those 4 pieces in half, you'll have 8 pieces. Now each piece is 1/8 of the pizza.

Study this site.

For your problem, you need to have a common denominator.

Can you take it from here?

(1/4)*(2/2)=2/8

(1/4)=(2/8)

(1/4)+(1/8)= (2/8)+(1/8) =3/8
