## Step 1

We can"t include two fountain with different denominators (the bottom number). Therefore you need to obtain a usual denominator - both bottom numbers have to match. To do this, you"ll main point the denominators times every other... Yet the numerators need to change, too. They obtain multiplied through the *other* term"s denominator.

You are watching: What is 1/8 plus 1/8

So us multiply 1 by 10, and get 10, then we multiply 8 by 10 and also get 80.

Do the exact same for the second term. Us multiply 1 by 8, and get 8, then multiply 8 through 10 and also get 80.

So now our fractions look like this:

1080 |

80 |

## Step 2

Since our denominators match, us can include the numerators.

10 + 8 = 18

Now we have actually an answer.

1880 |

## Step 3

Last of all, we must simplify the fraction, if possible. Deserve to it be diminished to a less complicated fraction?

To find out, we try dividing the by 2...

Are both the numerator and also the denominator same divisible by 2? Yes! so we minimize it:

1880 |

40 |

So much so good... Let"s try to divide by the number again.

No good. So following you shot the following prime number, which is 3...

No good. So following you shot the next prime number, which is 5...

No good. So next you try the following prime number, i m sorry is 7...

No good. So following you try the next prime number, which is 11...

No good. 11 is bigger than 9. Therefore we"re excellent reducing.

And we"re done! Here"s the final answer come 1/8 + 1/101 |
