This is how to add


Step 1Of 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. Do the same for the second term. We multiply 6 by 10, and get 60, then multiply 10 by 11 and get 110. The problem now has new fractions to add:


Step 2Since our denominators match, we can add the numerators. 77 + 60 = 137 This yields the answer


Step 3The last step is to reduce the fraction if we can. To find out, we try dividing it by 2... Nope. Try the next prime number, 3... Nope. Try the next prime number, 5... Nope. Try the next prime number, 7... Nope. Try the next prime number, 11... Nope. Try the next prime number, 13... Nope. Try the next prime number, 17... Nope. Try the next prime number, 19... Nope. Try the next prime number, 23... Nope. Try the next prime number, 29... Nope. Try the next prime number, 31... Nope. Try the next prime number, 37... Nope. Try the next prime number, 41... Nope. Try the next prime number, 43... Nope. Try the next prime number, 47... Nope. Try the next prime number, 53... Nope. Try the next prime number, 59... Nope. Try the next prime number, 61... Nope. Try the next prime number, 67... Nope. Try the next prime number, 71... Nope. Try the next prime number, 73... Nope. Try the next prime number, 79... Nope. Try the next prime number, 83... Nope. Try the next prime number, 89... Nope. Try the next prime number, 97... Nope. Try the next prime number, 101... Nope. Try the next prime number, 103... Nope. Try the next prime number, 107... Nope. Try the next prime number, 109... Nope. Try the next prime number, 113... No good. 113 is larger than 110. So we're done reducing. Congratulations! Here's your final answer to 7/10 + 6/11
