Fractions don't format well here. Try using a/b for fractions.
I'll do #1 and yo can post your own answers for the others, which we will be happy to check.
#1.
7 2/3 + 8 5/6
One way is to add the whole numbers, then add the fractions:
7+8 + 2/3 + 5/6
15 + 2/3 + 5/6
Now, set the fractions over a common denominator:
15 + 4/6 + 5/6
15 + 9/6
Now reduce the improper fraction to a mixed number:
15 + 6/6 + 3/6
15 + 1 + 3/6
16 1/2
Another way is to make everything into fractions first:
7 2/3 + 8 5/6
21/3 + 2/3 + 48/6 + 5/6
42/6 + 4/6 + 48/6 + 5/6
99/6
96/6 + 3/6
16 1/2
