$\dfrac{ 7 }{ 12 } + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 6 }$
$\dfrac { 3 } { 4 }$
Find the sum of the fractions
$\dfrac { 7 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 12 } } + \dfrac { 1 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 6 } }$
$ $ The smallest common multiple in denominator is $ 12$
$\dfrac { 7 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 12 } } + \dfrac { 1 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 6 } }$
$\dfrac { 7 } { 12 } + \dfrac { 1 } { 6 }$
$ $ Multiply the denominator and the numerator so that the denominator is the smallest common multiple $ $
$\dfrac { 7 } { 12 } + \dfrac { 1 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } } { 6 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 7 } { 12 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 1 \times 2 } { 6 \times 2 } }$
$ $ Organize the expression $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 7 } { 12 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 2 } { 12 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 7 } { 12 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 2 } { 12 } }$
$ $ Since the denominator is the same as $ 12 $ , combine the fractions into one $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 7 + 2 } { 12 } }$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 7 } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } } { 12 }$
$ $ Add $ 7 $ and $ 2$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 9 } } { 12 }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 9 } { 12 } }$
$ $ Reduce the fraction to the lowest term $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 3 } { 4 } }$
