$$\dfrac { 3 } { 4 } + \dfrac { 2 } { 3 }$$
$\dfrac { 17 } { 12 }$
Find the sum of the fractions
$\dfrac { 3 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 4 } } + \dfrac { 2 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } }$
$ $ The smallest common multiple in denominator is $ 12$
$\dfrac { 3 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 4 } } + \dfrac { 2 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } }$
$\dfrac { 3 } { 4 } + \dfrac { 2 } { 3 }$
$ $ Multiply the denominator and the numerator so that the denominator is the smallest common multiple $ $
$\dfrac { 3 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } } { 4 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } } + \dfrac { 2 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 4 } } { 3 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 4 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 3 \times 3 } { 4 \times 3 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 2 \times 4 } { 3 \times 4 } }$
$ $ Organize the expression $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 9 } { 12 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 8 } { 12 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 9 } { 12 } } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 8 } { 12 } }$
$ $ Since the denominator is the same as $ 12 $ , combine the fractions into one $ $
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 9 + 8 } { 12 } }$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 9 } \color{#FF6800}{ + } \color{#FF6800}{ 8 } } { 12 }$
$ $ Add $ 9 $ and $ 8$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 17 } } { 12 }$
