# What is the sum 10/19+3/19?

Nov 9, 2016

$\frac{10}{19} + \frac{3}{19} = \textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{13}{19}}$

#### Explanation:

$10$ of anything plus $3$ of the same thing $= 13$ of that thing:

color(white)("XXX")10 " elephants" + 3 " elephants" = 13 " elephants"

color(white)("XXX")10 " nineteenths" + 3 " nineteenths" = 13" nineteenths"
