    ... how to find the sum in simplest form of these common denominators 1/2 +1/10= ,5/12+1/4=,the difference in 2/3-1/6 =, 5/6-7/12=

    Common denominators to use are after the arrows:

    1/2 +1/10 ~~~>10

    5/12+1/4 ~~~>12
    Adding fractions

    2/3-1/6 ~~~>6

    5/6-7/12 ~~~>12
    Subtracting fractions

    These are just not that hard. One of the fractions in each problem already has the common denominator!! I'll do the first one for you.

    1/2 +1/10 ~~~>10
    therefore 5/10 + 1/10 = 6/10 = 3/5

    Now it's your turn.
