# How do write in simplest form given 1/2+1/4?

$\frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Since we have two fractions that don't have a common denominator, we need to convert at least one to have that common denominator.

Since $2 \times 2 = 4$, we can change the left fraction:

$\frac{1}{2} \left(1\right) + \frac{1}{4}$

$\frac{1}{2} \left(\frac{2}{2}\right) + \frac{1}{4}$

$\frac{2}{4} + \frac{1}{4} = \frac{3}{4}$
