Convert them to improper fractions, find a common denominator and proceed.

You convert them to top heavy fractions first.

Change them into mixed numbers and add the integers and fractions together ensuring that the fractions have a common denominator.

Yes.

Mixed numbers can be converted to improper fractions. Improper fractions can be added the same way proper fractions are.

Only to add, subtract, or compare two fractions. Note: Technically, to add two fractions (for example) you don't need the LEAST common multiple; any common multiple will do. As an example, if you want to add 1/4 + 1/6 (or any mixed number that ends with this fraction), you can use 24 as a common denominator (you can obtain this by multiplying 4 x 6), even though the least common multiple is 12.To add two mixed fractions, the easiest way is usually to add the whole part and the fractional part separately.

To find the sum of two mixed numbers, turn the mixed numbers into improper fractions (multiply the base with the denominator and add the numerator), then add the two fractions. To add the two fractions, find the LCD (lowest common denominator) and add the two numerators, but leave the denominators the same.

If the fractions do not all have the same denominator, find a common multiple of the denominators (ideally the lowest common multiple) and convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with this denominator. Now with all the fractions with the same denominator, add together the numerators. Finally, reduce the fraction to simplest terms, converting any improper fraction to a mixed number.

Same as any average. Add all the fractions and divide them by the amount of fractions

when you add mixed numbers you have a whole number but adding fraction does not.

Add them together and divide the answer by 2.

It is best to convert the mixed fraction to an improper fraction. They are then added together in the same way as proper fractions are added together.

Anyone who is trying to add or subtract fractions.

you can't add nor subtract mixed fractions so you need to turn it into a fraction, if you wanna turn a mixed fraction into a fraction you need to multiply the whole number by the denominator, then add the numerator, then you can multiply normally (make sure you simplify and turn it into a mixed fraction your answer)

False [ I THINK ]

Convert them to improper fractions with common denominators and proceed.

Yes, mixed fractions are rational

The fractions could add up to a whole number.

It is a process by which the product of mixed fractions is calculated.

what is dividing fractions and mixed numebers

You can either add the fractional parts and, if required, convert the answer to a mixed fraction and then add the integer part to the integer parts of the two original numbers; or change both numbers to top-heavy (or improper) fractions, add them and then convert the answer to a mixed fraction.

It will help when you are trying to add and subtract fractions.

So that you will be able to add and subtract fractions accurately.

You convert them to equivalent fractions each of whose denominators are the same - either the lowest common multiple (LCM) of the original denominators or a multiple of the LCM.

Because when adding or subtracting fractions the denominators must have the same values
