8 5/12 + 11 1/4

Oct 20th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The first step is to change the mixed fractions to improper fractions;

8 5/12 becomes; 101/12

and 11 1/4 becomes; 45/4

adding the two improper factions now; remembering you have to find the L.C.M of 4 and 12.

101/12 + 45/4 = (101 + 135)/12  = 236/12

after simplifying = 59/3

now changing 59/3 back to a mixed fraction;

=19 2/3

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
