Explanation:
We first must find the least common denominator which in this case is
To do this, we must multiply the following to get
#4*7# and#14*2# . This will give us the least common denominator.
Rule: What we do to the bottom, must be done to the top. so multiply the following to balance the equation:
#1*7# and#9*2#
Now we have a fraction equation such as the following:

#7/28+18/28 = 25/28# 
Keeping the denominator the same, add across and simplify if necessary.
