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.
