How do you add #1/2 + 4/6#?

Answer 1

#7/6 or 1 1/6#

We need to change the denominator so that they are equal, and as #2xx3=6#, we need to multiply the first fraction by #3# to get the denominators equal.
#1/2xx3/3 = (1xx3)/(2xx3)=3/6#

Since the denominators are the same, all we do now is add the numerators of the fraction.

#3/6+4/6=7/6#

This can't be simplified any further, so therefore we leave it as it is, or you could turn it to a mixed fraction which would give:

#1 1/6#

Answer 2

To add ( \frac{1}{2} + \frac{4}{6} ), first, find a common denominator for both fractions. The least common multiple of 2 and 6 is 6.

Rewrite the fractions with the common denominator:

( \frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{6} )

Then, add the fractions:

( \frac{3}{6} + \frac{4}{6} = \frac{3 + 4}{6} = \frac{7}{6} )

So, ( \frac{1}{2} + \frac{4}{6} = \frac{7}{6} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
