Do you need to get the LCM of mixed numbers?

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.

How do you add mixed numbers with whole numbers?

To add mixed numbers and whole numbers, you simply treat the mixed numbers like they are whole numbers (4 3/4) turns to (4), then add the regular whole number, say, 7, and then re-add the fraction. For example, if you were adding 4 3/4 and 7, you would change 4 3/4 to 4, add 7 to get 11, then add the 3/4 back in, to give you 11 3/4.

How do you find the sum of two mixed numbers?

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.

What is the first multiple of 9 that contains all even numbers?

288. All multiples of 9 will have digits that add to a multiple of 9. To get a multiple of 9 to be all even, you need to get them to add to 18, since no set of even numbers will add up to 9. 288 is the lowest multiple of 9 to be able to add to 18. ■
