# How do you simplify (8y+3)/6+(11y+10)/6?

May 7, 2017

$= \frac{19 y + 13}{6}$

This cannot be simplified further.

#### Explanation:

To be able to add or subtract fractions we need to have a common denominator. In this case the denominators are already the same so we can just combine the two fractions into one.

$\frac{8 y + 3}{6} + \frac{11 y + 10}{6}$

$= \frac{8 y + 3 + 11 y + 10}{6}$

$= \frac{19 y + 13}{6}$
