# How do you simplify 2/6+2/7?

Jun 29, 2016

$\frac{13}{12}$

#### 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.

$\frac{2 \cdot 7}{6 \cdot 7} + \frac{2 \cdot 6}{7 \cdot 6}$

$\frac{14}{42} + \frac{12}{42}$

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

$\frac{26}{42}$

Simplify both sides by taking out a $2$

$\frac{13}{21}$
