Work Step by Step

$\frac{5}{16} + \frac{1}{16}$ The sum of two fractions with same denominators is the sum of their numerators over the common denominator. $\frac{5+1}{16}$ = $\frac{6}{16}$ Since 2 is the greatest common factor of 6 and 16, divide numerator and denominator by 2 $\frac{2*3}{2*8}$ = $\frac{3}{8}$
