# Question #b8408

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To solve this problem, we need to add together two fractions with different denominators.

In order to add them correctly, we need to change both fractions so they have the same denominator.

One fraction has a denominator of

Let's start with

#2 color(white)"-"(1*color(blue)4)/(3*color(blue)4) = 2 4/(color(red)12)#

Next, let's change

#1 color(white)"-"(1*color(limegreen)3)/(4*color(limegreen)3) = 1 3/color(red)12#

Now, we can add the fractions together properly:

#2 4/12 + 1 3/12#

#= (2 + 4/12) + (1 + 3/12)#

#= (2 + 1) + (4/12 + 3/12)#

#= 3 + 7/12#

#= 3 7/12#
