Answer:

#1 1/4# #"cups"#

Explanation:

Because if you turn #1/2# cups into the same denominator as #3/4# cups, then the question becomes

#3/4 "cups" + 2/4 "cups" = 5/4 "cups"#

Now, to further simplify that answer, you'll have to divide the numerator #5# by the denominator #4#. You can only use this method if the numerator is bigger than the denominator.

You divide #5# by #4# you would have #1# and a remainder of #1# the first #1# is one whole and the second one is one-quarter. In numbers, it would look like #1# whole and #1/4# which is

#1 1/4# #"cups"#

Hope you understand! :)
