This is how you add
Since our denominators match, we can add the numerators.
1 + 3 = 4
So the answer is:
Last of all, we need to simplify the fraction, if possible. Can it be reduced to a simpler fraction?
To find out, we try dividing it by 2...
Are both the numerator and the denominator evenly divisible by 2? Yes! So we reduce it:
Now, try the same number again.
Nope. Try the next prime number, 3...
No good. 3 is larger than 2. So we're done reducing.
Congratulations! Here's your final answer to 1/6 + 3/6
