Add the fractions 2/3, 3/8, and 5/12 and reduce your answer to lowest terms.
A. 10/24 C. 1 11/24
B. 25/24 D. 1 1/2

would you add 2/24, 3/24, and 5/24

which equals 10/24 but I don't understand the lowest terms.

  • math -

    The common denominator is 24 -- so
    2/3 = 16/24
    3/8 = 9/24
    5/12 = 10/24

    16/24 + 9/24 + 10/24 = 35/24 = 1 11/24

    This site explains lowest terms.
