This is easiest done by separately adding the integer part, and the fractional part.

Example: Add 5 1/2 + 3 3/4

Convert to a common denominator: 5 2/4 + 3 3/4

Add integer part and fraction separately: 8 5/4

Convert improper fraction to mixed fraction: 8 + 1 1/4

Add the integer part again: 9 1/4
