This is how to add


Step 1Since our denominators match, we can add the numerators. 1 + 2 = 3 So what's the answer so far?


Step 2Can this fraction be reduced? First, we attempt to divide it by 2... Nope. Try the next prime number, 3... Nope. Try the next prime number, 5... No good. 5 is larger than 3. So we're done reducing. Congratulations! Here's your final answer to 1/5 + 2/5
