Answer:

7

Explanation:

So the number before the fractions means that there are that amount of wholes. In this case there's a four infront of the fraction with a 2 as a denominator so we know we have 4 wholes, so take 4 times 2 +1 so get 9. It's a bit hard to explain with words so lets just maths. Apply the following

#4 1/2+2 1/2#
#9/2+5/2 = 14/2 = 7#
