Hello !To add fractions up, you have to follow the steps below.Look for a common denominator.Find the equivalent fraction for each fraction.Add only the numerators.In $$ \ frac {5} {6} + \ frac {1} {3} $$ The common multiple of 3 and 6 is 6. This means that the common denominator will be 6.Let's find the equivalent fractions.$$ \ frac {5} {6} + \ frac {1 \ cdot 2} {3 \ cdot 2} = \ frac {5} {6} + \ frac {2} {6} $$Let's now add the numerators.$$ \ frac {5} {6} + \ frac {2} {6} = \ frac {5 + 2} {6} = \ frac {7} {6} $$There you go!Do not hesitate if you have any other question!
