Work Step by Step

We start by adding the whole numbers: 2+3=5. In order to add or subtract fractions, we start by making a common denominator (bottom of the fraction). Thus, we multiply 4/5 by 7/7 and 6/7 by 5/5 to obtain: $\frac{28}{35}$+($\frac{30}{35}$)=$\frac{58}{35}$. We add the 5 to get an answer of 6$\frac{23}{35}$.
