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
