Answer:

Find a common denominator, then add.

Explanation:

To find a common denominator, we need to find the LCM, or least common multiple, between the two denominators. In our case, the LCM is #6# because #3*2=6# and #6*1=6#. Our expression now reads:

#4/6+1/6#

From here, it's simple addition.

#4+1=5#

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