1/4+5/12 3+5/2^2*3 2^3-2/3 2/3 2/3 is your answer


In order to solve this problem you'll need to get a common denominator. So to do this you have to multiply 1/4 by 3. You do this by breaking down the fraction. 1x3=3. 4x3=12. Your new fraction is 3/12. Now you add it to 5/12. 3/12 + 5/12. Just add the nominators together and keep the denominator.  3+5 =8 Your answer is 8/12 If you need this simplified, you can divide both the numerator and the denominator by the GCL, or, greatest common factor.  In this case the GCL is 4. Therefore you divide both the 8 and the 12 by 4.  This gives you 2/3. The overall answer to this equation is: 8/12 simplified: 2/3
