$4\frac{8}{9}$
The first step is to add the whole numbers of each term $(1+3)$ to get 4. Then when adding the fraction, you need to find the LCM of the two denominators (9). Then add the fractions. $\frac{2}{9} +\frac{6}{9}= \frac{8}{9}$ Add both the whole and fraction parts to get. $4\frac{8}{9}$.
