I still do not understand

Today was my first day learning how to add 3 sets of fractions with different denominators and I did not get it. I need help with the following please.

1/8 + 1/2 + 3/4 =

Waht is the LCM? Answer 8. So convert all the other denominators to eights.

1/8 + 4/8 + 6/8

The LCM is the Lowest Common Multiple. See? I'm Smart!!!

Is 1 3/8 correct?

It is. Do you understand how to get the LCM?
