Work Step by Step

Step 1: Add the numerators to find the numerator of the sum. Step 2: Write the denominator of the like fractions as the denominator of the sum. Step 3: Write the sum in lowest terms. In example: $\frac{1}{6} + \frac{3}{6} = ? $ Step 1: $ 1 + 3 = 4$. Step 2: $ \frac{ 1 + 3 }{6} = \frac{4}{6} $. Step 3: $ \frac{4}{6} = \frac{2}{3}$.
