# How do you evaluate 7/8 + 8/7 ?

May 28, 2016

You would have to find a common denominator.

#### Explanation:

In this case, I use 56 as the common denominator.

$\frac{7}{8} \cdot \frac{7}{7} = \frac{49}{56}$

$\frac{8}{7} \cdot \frac{8}{8} = \frac{64}{56}$

$\frac{49}{56} + \frac{64}{56}$

$\frac{113}{56}$

Now, are you able to simplify the value any further?
