You need to find a common denominator.

First of all, 2/8 can be simplified as 1/4.

Next, convert 1/2 to fourths: 1/2 = 2/4.

Once you do this, addition is fairly simple: 1/4 + 2/4 = 3/4.

You can also do this without simplifying the original fraction: 1/2 + 2/8 = 4/8 + 2/8 = 6/8. This simplifies to 3/4.
