Just do the usual steps to add fractions. First, find the common denominator (8, in this case). Second, convert both fractions to the common denominator. Third, add the numerators.

12, i think

Pick two of the fractions and find the Least Common Multiple of those two denominators. Then take that number, and find the Least Common Multiple between that and the third denominator. This number will be the Least Common Denominator between the three fractions.If you don't care to find the Least common denominator, then just take the three denominators, and multiply them together.

three, because for one third three was the denominator , and for one sixth the denominator was devisable by three.

No, they are not equal. To compare, convert to a common denominator, for example, 24:1/3 = 8/243/8 = 9/24

Three ninths is one third, and eighths are bigger than ninths. Three eighths is bigger than three ninths. Therefore three eighths is bigger than one third.

1/2 = 3/6 1/3 = 2/6 so your common denominator would be 6

Three eighths divided by 1 and one third = 9/32

To add one third and one half, you'll want a common denominator. In this case, it's 6.

Three eighths is slightly larger

No. One third is 462/3% less than five eighths.
