# How do you solve #a+ 1\frac { 2} { 3} = 2\frac { 5} { 6}#?

See a solution process below:

First, convert each of the mixed numbers into an improper fraction to make the problem easier to work with:

Next, use the incorrect fractions to rewrite the equation as follows:

We can change this incorrect fraction into a mixed number if needed:

Thus, another way to write the solution is as follows:

To solve the equation ( a + \frac{1}{2} = 2\frac{5}{6} ), first, subtract ( \frac{1}{2} ) from ( 2\frac{5}{6} ), then:

[ 2\frac{5}{6} - \frac{1}{2} = 2 + \frac{5}{6} - \frac{1}{2} ] [ = 2 + \frac{5}{6} - \frac{3}{6} ] [ = 2 + \frac{2}{6} ] [ = 2 + \frac{1}{3} ] [ = 2\frac{1}{3} ]

So, the equation becomes ( a + \frac{1}{2} = 2\frac{1}{3} ).

To isolate ( a ), subtract ( \frac{1}{2} ) from both sides:

[ a + \frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{2} = 2\frac{1}{3} - \frac{1}{2} ] [ a = 2\frac{1}{3} - \frac{1}{2} ]

Now, convert both fractions to have the same denominator:

[ a = \frac{2 \times 2}{3 \times 2} - \frac{1 \times 3}{2 \times 3} ] [ a = \frac{4}{6} - \frac{3}{6} ] [ a = \frac{4 - 3}{6} ] [ a = \frac{1}{6} ]

So, the solution is ( a = \frac{1}{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.
