#### Answer

$\frac{1}{2}$

#### Work Step by Step

$\frac{1}{4}$ + $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{1 + 1}{4}$ = $\frac{2}{4}$
Add the numerators
$2$ is the sum of the numerators
$4$ is the same denominator
$\frac{2}{4}$ is not in lowest terms.
Write $\frac{2}{4}$ in lowest terms
$\frac{2}{4}$ = $\frac{2\div2}{4\div2}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$
