**Steve**, Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at 3:25pmFractions 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
