# How do you calculate #5/8+3/16#?

you would have to make both denominators the same to do this the first fraction should be multiplied by 2/2 (2 over 2) that would be 10/16 add the numerators together you get 13/16.

Basically you are finding the lowest common factor among the denominators and since 8 can go into 16, 2 times you would multiply both the numerator and denominator by 2. Now that you have the same denominator for both you can add them.

To calculate ( \frac{5}{8} + \frac{3}{16} ), first find a common denominator for both fractions, which is 16. Then, rewrite each fraction with this denominator:

( \frac{5}{8} = \frac{5 \times 2}{8 \times 2} = \frac{10}{16} )

Now, add the fractions:

( \frac{10}{16} + \frac{3}{16} = \frac{10 + 3}{16} = \frac{13}{16} )

So, ( \frac{5}{8} + \frac{3}{16} = \frac{13}{16} ).
