if you are adding two fractions that are both greater than 1/2, what must be true about the sum?

1/2 + 1/2 = 1

1/2 + 1 1/2=2

Consider a denominator of r; It has proper fractions: 1/r, 2/r, ...., (r-1)/r Their sum is: (1 + 2 + ... + (r-1))/r The numerator of this sum is 1 + 2 + ... + (r-1) Which is an Arithmetic Progression (AP) with r-1 terms, and sum: sum = number_of_term(first + last)/2 = (r-1)(1 + r-1)/2 = (r-1)r/2 So the sum of the proper fractions with a denominator or r is: sum{r} = ((r-1)r/2)/r = ((r-1)r/2r = (r-1)/2 Now consider the sum of the proper fractions with a denominator r+1: sum{r+1} = (((r+1)-1)/2 = ((r-1)+1)/2 = (r-1)/2 + 1/2 = sum{r) + 1/2 So the sums of the proper fractions of the denominators forms an AP with a common difference of 1/2 The first denominator possible is r = 2 with sum (2-1)/2 = ½; The last denominator required is r = 100 with sum (100-1)/2 = 99/2 = 49½; And there are 100 - 2 + 1 = 99 terms to sum So the required sum is: sum = ½ + 1 + 1½ + ... + 49½ = 99(½ + 49½)/2 = 99 × 50/2 = 2475

It need not be. The numbers 1/2 and (-1/2) are both fractions less than 1 but their quotient is -1, which is less than both the fractions.

This is a false statement. An example would be 1/3 plus 3/4; the sum of wich is 13/12 or 1 1/12.

The sum of two fractions will be equal to one when the numerator and the denominator of their sum are the same. Example: 1/3 + 2/3 = 3/3 or 1

1/3

1/3 + 1/2

0.5

The sum of those fractions is 9 over 10 or 9/10.

1/2, 1/4

The two fractions are -181/2 and 191/2.

How about: 1/3+1/3 = 2/3 as one example

4/4+2/4=6/4=1 1/2

The sum of 1/3 and 1/6 is 1/2

1/2 + 3/2 my ass/bumbums

1/7 and 1/8

3/6 is equivalent to 1/2. The sum of both fractions is 1.

3 1/2+6 5/8

You must convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with a common denominator, which in this case is 20.

3

1/3, 1/4, 1/5

3/4 + 5/6

yes, negative fractions such as -1/2, -1/3 ...
