No. 5/8+5/8=10/8=1 1/4
First of all it is not reduced and secondly it is an improper fraction.
We normally call what you have said a common fraction.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is a improper fractions?

An improper fraction is when the numerator is a greater sum then the denominator. Example- 10/5. To change that into a proper fraction you divide the numerator by the denominator. Example - 2 1/5

how to convert a non-proper fraction into a proper fraction?

Multiply the whole number by the denominator. Add the product to the numerator of the proper fraction. The sum is the numerator of the improper fraction. The denominator will stay the same.

How can you estimate the sum of two game cards when one game card is decimal and one is a fraction?

It depends on your level of numerical skill. You can convert the decimal to an approximate fraction and estimate the sum of the two fractions, or you can convert the fraction to an approximate decimal and estimate the sum of the two decimals or, if you are more able you just estimate their sum directly.

How do you subtract dissimilar fraction?

Before fractions can be subtracted or added, they must have the same denominators. Therefore, each of the denominator and numerator of a pair of dissimilar fractions should be multiplied by a number chosen so that the resulting fractions will have the same denominators. This is most readily accomplished by multiplying each fraction by the denominator of the other. Once the fractions have a common denominator, their numerators can be subtracted or added to obtain the proper value of the numerator of the sum or difference, which will have the common denominator thus determined. It may, of course, be possible to simplify the resulting fraction.

How many different ways can you write a fraction that has a numerator of 2 as a sum of fractions?

Infinitely many ways, since if you have found one way then take one of the fractions and replace it by an equivalent fraction. Repeat for ever.

How do you calculate the sum of fractions?

If the fractions do not all have the same denominator, find a common multiple of the denominators (ideally the lowest common multiple) and convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with this denominator. Now with all the fractions with the same denominator, add together the numerators. Finally, reduce the fraction to simplest terms, converting any improper fraction to a mixed number.
