Answer:

#13/12#

Explanation:

First we need to get common denominators to add these fractions.
A common denominator we can get is #42# since both numbers can multiply to that.

#(2*7)/(6*7) + (2*6)/(7*6)#

#14/42 + 12/42#

Now we add the numerators, but keep the denominator the same.

#26/42#

Simplify both sides by taking out a #2#

#13/21#
