    When we add or subtract fractions, we must have a common denonimator.

    2 1/4 = 2 2/8

    When I added the two fractions, I added the whole numbers and the numerators. That is 5 9/8. But since 9/8 is larger than 1, I simplified the fraction to 6 1/8.

    Which part doesn't the child understand?

    If you divide two pizzas into 8ths, you have 8 in one pizza and 8 in the other pizza. 9/8 is all of the pieces in one plus one piece from the other.

    You might draw a picture for the child showing the two pizzas.
