#### How to Add Fractions

In order to add fractions you need to have the

SAME DENOMINATOR:

Let's say you have to add

3/2 + 4/5

As you can see, the denominators are different, therefore I need to use some math to make them equal. I will multiply the first fraction by 5 (top and bottom) and the second fraction by 2 (top and denominator)

I get:

3(5)/2(5) + 4(2)/5(2)

15/10 + 8/10

Now I have the same denominator (10) and I can add the top

(15 + 8)= 23 and keep the same denominator.

My final answer is 23/10
