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.

Ms. Sue
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.
