Before you can add fractions, you first need to convert the fractions so they have common denominators. Two thirds is equal to four sixths, so now we can add the fractions that have common denominators. Four sixths and five sixths equals eleven sixths, or one and five sixths left over. Now, add your whole numbers...one, four and the one gained when we converted the fraction equals six and five sixths.

Denominator of seven eights, ie of fifty six is 1. The denominator of five sixths is 6 so the common denominator is 6.

Seven sixths.

When you want to add fractions that have different denominators, you have to convert them into fractions that do have the same denominators. So for example, how much is a half plus a third? Both of these can be converted into sixths, so one half equals three sixths, and one third equals two sixths. Three sixths plus two sixths equals five sixths. That's the answer. If you have three fractions with different denominators, the procedure is the same. Convert all three into fractions with the same denominators, then add them.

Equivalent fractions must have equal denominators, and this is done by setting the denominators of both fractions to their smallest common multiple. So, say a person wants to compare two thirds and one half, they would set both denominators to six. Two thirds would become four sixths and one half would become three sixths. Thus, two thirds is bigger than one half.
