First you need to make the denominator the same (the number in the bottom of the fraction). Once they have the same denominator you can add them together. For example: 3/4 + 5/6 = 9/12 +10/12 = 19/12 To change the denominator you must multiply the top (numerator) by the same factor as the denominator. 3/4 —> 9/12 because you multiply 4 by 3 and 3 by 3. If you need anymore help with this let me know, we could probably do this in a short half hour or so tuition session.
