Change each mixed fraction to a fraction:
3 1/4+ 1 5/6
Add the integer parts and fractional parts separately:
=(3+1) + 1/4 + 5/6
Find the LCM of 4 and 6, which is 12.
Convert each fraction to a denominator of 12:
=4 + 3/12 + 10/12
Add numerators and simplify if necessary
=4 + 13/12
=4 + 1 + 1/12
=5 1/12
