# A box of has 3/8 cup remaining. Another box has 1/3 cup left. How many cups of granola are there overall?

Nov 23, 2016

$\frac{17}{24}$cups of granola all together.

#### Explanation:

Let's let the amount of granola left be $g$. Then:

$g = \frac{3}{8}$cup$+ \frac{1}{3}$cup

Multiply each fraction by the necessary form of $1$ to get each of them over a common denominator, in this case $24$:

$g = \frac{3}{3} \frac{3}{8}$cup$+ \frac{8}{8} \frac{1}{3}$cup

$g = \frac{9}{24}$cup$+ \frac{8}{24}$cup

$g = \frac{17}{24}$cups
