What is the best way to add fractions and reduced them to the lowest terms example 3/8+1/3+5/6

  • Math adding fractions -

    First, find the lowest common denominator. What does 8, 3, and 6 go into evenly? Let's take the largest number -- 8. Multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32 . . .
    Which of those numbers can be divided evenly by 8, 3, and 6?

    Did you get 24?

    Next -- divide 24 by the denominators in each fraction.

    24/8 = 3

    Multiply your answer by the numerator.

    3 * 3 = 9

    3/8 = 9/24

    1/3 = 8/24

    5/6 = 20/24

    9/24 + 8/24 + 20/24

    Add the numerators

    9/24 + 8/24 + 20/24 = 37/24

    Divide 37 by 24 to get the lowest term.

    37/24 = 1 13/24
