8 1/4  4 5/6

Ms. Sue
8 1/4  4 5/6
First find the common denominator and change the fractions to equivalent fractions.
8 1/4 = 8 3/12
4 5/6 = 4 10/12
Then add:
8 3/12 + 4 10/12 = 12 13/12 = 13 1/12 
E.G.
I am probably terribly wrong, and if so, I am sorry, but should the answer not have been 3 7/12
Should 4 10/12 not have been SUBTRACTED from 8 3/12? 
Ms. Sue
Thank you, EG. I missed the minus sign.
This time I get:
8 3/12  4 10/12 = 7 15/12  4 10/12 = 3 5/12 
E.G.
You are very welcome.
