    Fractions don't format well here. Try using a/b for fractions.

    I'll do #1 and yo can post your own answers for the others, which we will be happy to check.

    #1.

    7 2/3 + 8 5/6
    One way is to add the whole numbers, then add the fractions:

    7+8 + 2/3 + 5/6
    15 + 2/3 + 5/6
    Now, set the fractions over a common denominator:

    15 + 4/6 + 5/6
    15 + 9/6
    Now reduce the improper fraction to a mixed number:
    15 + 6/6 + 3/6
    15 + 1 + 3/6
    16 1/2

    Another way is to make everything into fractions first:

    7 2/3 + 8 5/6
    21/3 + 2/3 + 48/6 + 5/6
    42/6 + 4/6 + 48/6 + 5/6
    99/6
    96/6 + 3/6
    16 1/2
