    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
