Solve the following problem and reduce to lowest terms (mixed number or improper fraction).


2/3 + 1/6 +11/12

  • Math -

    First we have to find equivalent fractions with the same denominator.

    2/3 = 8/12
    1/6 = 2/12

    Now add the numerators.

    8/12 + 2/12 + 11/12 = 21/12 = 1 9/12 = 1 3/4

  • Math -

    2 / 3 = 2 * 4 / ( 3 * 4 ) = 8 / 12

    1 / 6 = 1 * 2 / ( 6 * 2 ) = 2 / 12


    2 / 3 + 1 / 6 + 11 / 12 = 8 / 12 + 2 / 12 + 11 / 12 =

    21 / 12 =

    3 * 7 / ( 3 * 4 ) =

    7 / 4 =

    ( 4 + 3 ) / 4 =

    4 / 4 + 3 / 4 =

    1 + 3 / 4 = 1 3 / 4
