hailey wants to rake her entire yard. This morning she raked 1/3 of the yard, and this afternoon she raked another 3/5 of the yard. What fraction of her yard still needs to be raked?

To add fractions, the must have the same denominators.
1/3 = 5/15
3/5 = 9/15
5/15 + 9/15 = 14/15
15/15  14/15 = 1/15
