1) 2/3 + 1/8 = 19/24
I do not understand how they got 19/24 can you help me with the steps to show me how. Thank you

Before you can add fractions, you have to have common denominators. That is, both fractions need to have the same number in the denominator (the bottom number).
The easiest way to find a common denominator is to multiply the two denominators. In this case 3 * 8 = 24.
