Turn the mixed numbers into improper fractions, then simply add.

#### Explanation:

In order to turn mixed numbers into improper fractions, all we have to do is multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator:

$\frac{25}{9} + \frac{32}{9}$

From here, just add the fractions together:

$25 + 32 = 57$

$\frac{25}{9} + \frac{32}{9} = \frac{57}{9}$
