We need to change the the denominators to be same in order to add. We multiply 1/2 by something to get a denominator of 16 without changing its value. 1 is something you can multiply by. 8/8 = 1, so we do (1/2)(8/8) = 8/16. Now we do addition. 8/16 + 9/16 = (9+8)/16 = 17/16. We can't simplify more so 17/16 is our final answer. If you want you can make 17/16 to a mixed number which is 1 1/16.
