... how to find the sum in simplest form of these common denominators 1/2 +1/10= ,5/12+1/4=,the difference in 2/3-1/6 =, 5/6-7/12=

Common denominators to use are after the arrows:

1/2 +1/10 ~~~>10

5/12+1/4 ~~~>12

Adding fractions

2/3-1/6 ~~~>6

5/6-7/12 ~~~>12

Subtracting fractions

**These are just not that hard. One of the fractions in each problem already has the common denominator!! I'll do the first one for you.
**

1/2 +1/10 ~~~>10

therefore 5/10 + 1/10 = 6/10 = 3/5

Now it's your turn.

You typed, "i.ve done the best i could but aren't sure there right."

I haven't seen any of your work yet. Where did you post it?
