The following examples will show how to add the fractions.

He had 1/3 of the second pie.

The total part of the two pies = ¾ + 1/3

To add these fractions, with two uncommon denominators, we find the least common denominator first.

The least common denominator of 4 and 3 is 12

¾ + 1/3 = 9 + 4/12 = 13/12

Hence Jamie had 13/12 part of the two pies.

We have two fractions and one integer here.

The denominators in both the fractions are same, hence we add 9/5 + 6/5 as 9 + 6/5 which is equal to 15/5 and that can be simplified to 3.

Now the equation becomes 3 + 12 which is equal to 15.
