### This Is a Certified Answer

**To add dissimilar fraction**

**2/4 + 3/6**

**List the multiples of each denominator until a common number is found.**Multiples of 4: 4, 8,

**12**

Multiples of 6: 6,

**12**

Now we know

**12 is the least common denominator of 2/4 and 3/6.**

Write each fraction with common denominator.

Write each fraction with common denominator.

(Common Denominator ÷ Denominator) x Numerator = New Numerator

Evaluating the formula to the first fraction, we got:

(12 / 4) x 2 = 6

Evaluating the formula to the second fraction, we got:

(12 / 6) x 3 = 6

Rewrite the fractions,

1st Fraction : 6/12

2nd Fraction : 6/12

__Add the first numerator and the second numerator together then copy the denominator, as the denominator is the same and both fractions is already similar.__

__6 + 6__=

__12__

12 12

So we got 12/12 as the answer.

**Simplify the answer. If mixed number, make it a improper fraction and vice versa.**

12 / 12 = 1

12 / 12 = 1

So therefore, 2/4 + 3/6 is equal to 1/1, and can be simplified as

**1.**

__I HAVE A EASY METHOD FOR IT!!!!!!__

2/4 + 3/6

**2/4 + 3/6**

__Multiply the denominators__

= Denominators

= 4 and 6

= 4 x 6

= 24 will be our denominator

**2/4 + 3/6**

__Use cross product multiplication to find the numerator.__

= 2(6) added to 4(3)

**= 12 + 12 will be our numerator.**

__2/4 + 3/6__

**Finalize, then simplify.**

= 12 + 12 / 24

= 24 / 24

= 1 / 1

or

**1**

*~~ ^_^ Hope it is helpful, I always use the second method because I always forget the first. Lol. Hahaha. I love cross product multiplication.*

### This Is a Certified Answer

**Dissimilar fractions**are fractions that have different denominators.

Example:

2/4 , 3/5, 7/8

__1/3 + 3/4__**(1) Find for the least common multiple (LCM) of the denominators.**

**LCM of 3 and 4 =**

**12**

(2) Make another fraction by putting the LCM in the denominator and leaving the numerator blank.

⇒ ---------

12

(3) Divide the LCM by the denominator of the first and second fraction, and then multiply the answer to the numerator of the first and second fraction respectively.

1/3 + 3/4

12 ÷ 3 = 4 ⇒ 4 × 1 =

**4**

12 ÷ 4 = 3 ⇒ 3 × 3 =

**9**

The answer will be our new numerator, well of course, respectively separated by the plus or the addition sign.

4 9

------- + -------

12 12

(4) Now that they already have the same denominator, add them already.

4/12 + 9/ 12 = 13/12

The answer is

**13/12.**
