=$\frac{47}{42}$

=$1 \frac{5}{42}$

#### Explanation:

When adding or subtracting fractions we need to find a common denominator. For 6 and 7, the lowest common denominator is 42.

Make equivalent fractions.

$\frac{2}{7} + \frac{5}{6} \text{ } \rightarrow \frac{2 \times 6}{7 \times 6} + \frac{5 \times 7}{6 \times 7}$

=$\frac{12 + 35}{42}$

=$\frac{47}{42}$

=$1 \frac{5}{42}$

$1 \frac{5}{42}$

#### Explanation:

color(blue)(2/7+5/6

If we need to add fractions, we should have the same denominator.
So, we need to find the least common denominator of $7 \mathmr{and} 6$

It is $42$

Convert the initial fractions

$\rightarrow \frac{2}{7} + \frac{5}{6}$

$\rightarrow \frac{2 \times 6}{7 \times 6} + \frac{5 \times 7}{6 \times 7}$

$\rightarrow \frac{12}{42} + \frac{35}{42}$

$\rightarrow \frac{12 + 35}{42}$

$\rightarrow \frac{47}{42}$

Hope this helps.... :)
