# How do you simplify 2/3 + 2/9?

May 1, 2018

$\frac{8}{9}$

#### Explanation:

For addition fractions, you first want to make sure your denominator is the same which in this case you want it to be a 9

$\frac{2}{3} \times \frac{3}{3} + \frac{2}{9}$

$= \frac{6}{9} + \frac{2}{9}$

$= \frac{8}{9}$

Remember whatever you do to the denominator you also have to do with the numerator. So since you had to times it by 3 for the denominator to equal to 9, then you also have to times the numerator by 3 which equals to 6.
