Page 214 Question and Answer for #9

What is the sum of each fraction statement? Write answer in lowest term.

Sum means the answer of a addition question.


Lowest term is to reduce the fraction. which means you find a number that goes into the numerator and denominator. For example 2/6=1/3 the number that goes into 2 and 6 is 2. 2 goes into 2 once and 2 goes into 6 three times. Numerator is the number at the top- and denominator means the number that is at the bottom_.


Adding Like Denominators

a) 1/7 + 2/7= 3/7
b) 5/12 + 5/12 = 10/12 or 5/6
c) 1/3 + 1/3=2/3
d) 4/9 +2/9= 6/9 or 2/3
e) 3/10 +7/10= 10/10 or 1

You only add the numerator and leave the denominator the same. If possible reduce the fraction into its lowest term.
