  1. Add $\frac{3}{4}$ and $\frac{5}{6}$


    Step 1 :  

    Given fractions are:-


    $\frac{3}{4}$ and $\frac{5}{6}$


    LCD of 4 and 6


    Multiples of 4 = 4, 8, 12, 16


    Multiples of 6 = 6, 12, 18


    So the LCD will be 12



    Step 2 :  

    For making the denominators the same, we need to multiply the fraction $\frac{3}{4}$ by 3, both in numerator and denominator. $\frac{3×3}{4×3}$ = $\frac{9}{12}$


    similarly for fraction $\frac{5}{6}$, multiply the numerator and deniminator by 2


    $\frac{5×2}{6×2}$ = $\frac{10}{12}$



    Step 3 :  

    Adding the numerators


    9 + 10 = 19



    Step 4 :  

    Fraction = $\frac{19}{12}$



    Answer  :  

    $\frac{19}{12}$



  2. Add $\frac{2}{5}$ and $\frac{3}{6}$


    Step 1 :  

    Given fractions are:-


    $\frac{2}{5}$ and $\frac{3}{6}$


    LCD of 5 and 6


    Multiples of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30


    Multiples of 6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30


    So the LCD will be 30



    Step 2 :  

    For making the denominators the same, we need to multiply the fraction $\frac{2}{5}$ by 6, both in numerator and denominator. $\frac{2×6}{5×6}$ = $\frac{12}{30}$


    similarly for fraction $\frac{3}{6}$, multiply the numerator and deniminator by 5


    $\frac{3×5}{6×5}$ = $\frac{15}{30}$


    For making the denominator same we need to multiply the fraction 3/4 by 3, both in numerator and denominator. $\frac{3×3}{4×3}$ = $\frac{9}{12}$


    similarly for fraction $\frac{5}{6}$, multiply the numerator and deniminator by 2


    $\frac{5×2}{6×2}$ = $\frac{10}{12}$



    Step 3 :  

    Adding the numerator


    12 + 15 = 27



    Step 4 :  

    Fraction = $\frac{27}{30}$



    Answer  :  

    $\frac{27}{30}$
