Work Step by Step

We start by adding the whole numbers: 4+1=5. In order to add or subtract fractions, we start by making a common denominator (bottom of the fraction). Thus, we multiply 2/3 by 11/11 and 6/11 by 3/3 to obtain: $\frac{22}{33}$+($\frac{18}{33}$)=$\frac{40}{33}$. We add the 5 to get an answer of 6$\frac{7}{33}$.
