Hey guys today in class we talked about adding proper fractions. So how do we add proper fractions? I'll show you how step by step.

3/4 + 1/6

Step 1: Find a common denominator. The common denominator is 12. For those who doesn't know how to find the it, I will show you how.

Okay, so that is how you can find the common denominator.

Step 2: Find equivalent fractions.

Step 3: Rewrite the question. Now you have the same denominator you can answer it.

Step 4: Answer and simplify if possible.

So that's it. The answer is 11/12. It is already simplified. Note: When you add or subtract fractions, you only add or subtract the numerators.

Homework:

Answer these questions Mr. B gave us:

1) 3/8 + 3/4

2) 1/6 + 1/4

3) 1/5 + 1/3

4) 3/10 + 3/4

5) 1/16 + 1/8

6) 1/2 + 3/5

7) 4/7 + 3/14

8) 3/4 + 7/8

9) 1/9 + 17/18

10) 1/5 + 1/4 + 1/3 +1/2

Okay, if you're having a really bad time with those difficult questions, follow the steps so you can answer those questions easily ;)
