Best Answer

In order to add a fraction to a variable the fraction must be converted to decimal as computers cannot understand fractions, thats why they have floating points. On the other hand you could produce an answer in decimal and then convert it into a fraction afterwards but it would be overly complicated for a program to do this. I suggest if you are seriously into this somewhat eccentric behaviour you should try the program Mathematica from Wolfram research which is very expensive.

How is adding like fractions and adding unlike fractions the same?

If the denominators are not the same, then you have to use equivalent fractions which do have a common denominator . To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators. To add fractions with unlike denominators, rename the fractions with a common denominator. Then add and simplify.
