9 / 16 + 1/2 = ? Step 1. In adding fractions, denominators must be the same. As we can see the denominators are 16 and 2. We observe that 16 is 8 times bigger than 2. Therefore, we must multiply 1/2 by 8 to get the same denominator. (1 * 8) / (2 * 8) = 8 / 16 Step 2.  Add the numerators and put them over the same denominator. 9/16 + 8/16 = (9+8) / 16 = 17 / 16 Step 3. Simplify the fractions. (If needed) As you can see, 17/16 is in its simplest form. Thus, 9/16 + 1/2 = 17/16
