Step 1

We can"t include two fractions with different denominators (the bottom number). So you require to get a typical denominator - both bottom numbers should match. To perform this, you"ll multiply the platform times each other... Yet the numerators have to change, too. They gain multiplied by the other term"s denominator.

You are watching: 5/8 plus 5/8 equals

So we multiply 5 through 8, and also get 40, then we multiply 6 through 8 and get 48.

*

Do the exact same for the second term. We multiply 5 by 6, and get 30, then multiply 6 by 8 and get 48.

*

So currently our fountain look like this:

40
48
+30
48

Step 2

Since our platform match, us can include the numerators.

40 + 30 = 70

So the prize is:

70
48

Step 3

Last the all, we must simplify the fraction, if possible. Can it be lessened to a less complicated fraction?

To discover out, we try dividing it by 2...

Are both the numerator and the denominator same divisible by 2? Yes! for this reason we mitigate it:

70
48
÷ 2 =35
24

Let"s shot dividing by that again...

Nope! So now we try the next best prime number, 3...

Nope! So currently we shot the next biggest prime number, 5...

Nope! So now we shot the next best prime number, 7...

Nope! So currently we shot the next best prime number, 11...

Nope! So currently we try the next greatest prime number, 13...

Nope! So now we try the next biggest prime number, 17...

Nope! So currently we shot the next greatest prime number, 19...

Nope! So currently we shot the next best prime number, 23...

Nope! So now we shot the next best prime number, 29...

No good. 29 is larger than 24. Therefore we"re done reducing.

There you have it! Here"s the final answer to 5/6 + 5/8
5
6
+5
8
=35
24
