What is 7/10 + 10/11?

What is 7/10 + 10/11?

This is how we add

7
10
+
10
11

Step 1

Of course, you can't add two fractions if the denominators (bottom numbers) don't match. To get a common denominator, multiply the denominators together. Then we fix the numerators by multiplying each one by their other term's denominator.

Now you multiply 7 by 11, and get 77, then we multiply 10 by 11 and get 110.

7/10 times 11

Do the same for the second term. We multiply 10 by 10, and get 100, then multiply 10 by 11 and get 110.

10/11 times 10

The problem now has new fractions to add:

77
110
+
100
110

Step 2

Since our denominators match, we can add the numerators.

77 + 100 = 177

The sum we get is

177
110

Step 3

The last step is to reduce the fraction if we can.

To find out, we try dividing it by 2...

No good. 113 is larger than 110. So we're done reducing.

And we're done! Here's the final answer to 7/10 + 10/11
