2 1/3 + 3 5/6 + 6 2/3   = 12 5/6 Convert mixed fractions into fractions: 2 1/3 = (2*3 + 1)/3 = 7/3 3 5/6 = (3*6 + 5)/6 = 23/6 6 2/3 = (6*3 + 2)/3 = 20/3 Fractions must have the same denominator to be added or subtracted. 6 is the common multiple between 6 and 3. So numbers must be multiplied to the fraction to get a product of 6 in the denominator. 7/3 *  2/2 = 14/6 20/3 * 2/2 = 40/6 14/6 + 23/6 + 40/6 = (14+23+40)/6 = 77/6 = 12 5/6

2 1/3+ 3 5/6+ 6 2/3 = 7/3+ 23/6+ 20/3 = 14/6+ 23/6+ 40/6 = 77/6 = 12 5/6 The final answer is 12 5/6~
