How do you simplify #2/3 + 1/6#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#2/3+1/6=4/6+1/6=5/6#

Explanation:

When adding fractions, we need to make sure that the denominators are the same (if we use a pizza analogy, it's the denominator that tells us how big the pizza slices are and the numerator that tells us how many of those slices we have).

#2/3+1/6#

We can use a creative form of 1 to make the adjustment:

#2/3(1)+1/6#

#2/3(2/2)+1/6#

#4/6+1/6=5/6#
