Answer:

#3/7#

Explanation:

This is the general method.

Start by making both denominators equal by multiplying each fraction top and bottom with the denomintor of the other fraction:

So,
#4/14 = (4/14) (7/7) = (4*7)/(14 * 7)#

#1/7 = (1/7) (14/14) = (14)/(7 * 14)#

Denominators are equal so add the numerators and divide:

#(28 + 14)/(7*14)# = #42/(7*14)# = #6/14#

Which can be simplified further #3/7#
