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

If the sum of the numerators is greater than the denominator the sum is greater than 1. If the sum of the numerators is equal to the denominator the sum is equal to 1. If the sum of the numerators is less than the denominator the sum is less 1.

No. Each mixed number is made of a whole number and a fraction. When you add them, you have the sum of two whole numbers and two fractions. Since each whole number must be at least ' 1 ', the sum of two whole numbers must be at least ' 2 ', and the two fractions will always make it more than ' 2 '.

The two fractions are 1/6 and 3/8

1/2 + 1 1/2=2

1half+1half 3quarters+1quarter

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