What is the sum of
and First, we need to find the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of both denominators or to be exact, we need to find their LCD (Least Common Denominator).
4 = 4, 8, 12, 16, 20
6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30
So as we can see, their least common multiple is 12.
We need to apply the basic rules. First, divide 12 by the denominator of the first given fraction and then multiply the quotient by the numerator.
Copy the sign.
Apply the rule on the second fraction. Divide 12 by the denominator and then multiply the resulting quotient to the numerator.
Then add. Now, we can add because they're already similar fractions.
Note: We can't add dissimilar fractions, so you need to make those dissimilar fractions similar so that we can add them.The answer is .
⇒ Rounded to the thousandths place -- 1.083
⇒ Rounded to the hundredths place -- 1.08
⇒ Rounded to the tenths place -- 1.1
⇒Rounded to the nearest whole number -- 1
