How to Add Mixed Fractions?

Answer

To add mixed fractions, you first add the whole numbers. Then you find the common denominator for the fractions, which is the lowest number that both bottom numbers will do into. Multiple the numerators, or the top number in the fraction, by the common denominator divided by the original denominator. Then you add both numerators and put them over the common denominator. Simply the fraction if you can, and you're done.
