That i dont know but i do know how to add fractions! you add the numerator only. OK hope that helped.!

BYE!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

ok, that was not a good answer @ ALL. this is how u do it:

EX: 9/12 + 3/9

first, u get the fraction pieces that you want to use (ninths)

next u put wat ur addin (9/18 to 3/9) n u set it up

b/c the fractions dont have the same denominatr, you half 2 make it the same denominatr (9/18 = 9/18 n 3/9 = 6/18 -- just double or multiply by 2)

then u add-- this is the easy part, for it is explaind ^-- n ur sum is 15/18

u can now simplify it 2 5/6 (just divide by 3)

ur welcome!!!
