Work Step by Step

We start by adding the whole numbers: 6+3=9. In order to add or subtract fractions, we start by making a common denominator (bottom of the fraction). Thus, we multiply 2/3 by 5/5 and 4/5 by 3/3 to obtain: $\frac{10}{15}$+($\frac{12}{15}$)=$\frac{22}{15}$. We add the 9 to get an answer of 10$\frac{7}{15}$.
