How do you work 6 divided by 9 plus 2 divided by 3?

Problem: 6/9+2/3

To do this problem, you will want to use the PEMDAS system. This acronym stands for "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction" and indicates the order in which you should work through a problem to solve it. But you really only need to be concerned with the Division and Addition portions. In the acronym, Division comes before Addition, so you will want to do all the division in the problem first, and then add.

So, (6/9) = 2/3 (two-thirds, or about 0.67). Rather than actually dividing 2 by 3, you can just leave it as a fraction and add the two fractions together. When adding fractions that have the same base, you really only add the numerators. So here you get 4/3, or 1 and 1/3.

Answer: 4/3 (four-thirds) or 1 and 1/3 (one and one-third)
