# 3 2/4 plus 1 2/4

Asked By lilly On 02/13/2017 23:46

## Answers

1) Convert both fractions into improper fractions by multiplying the denominator by the whole number and then adding the numerator. 3 2/4 would turn into 14/4 and 1 2/4 would turn into 6/4.
2) Add the numerators of your two new fractions but keep the denominators the same giving you 20/4.
3) Simplify your new fraction if possible. 20/4 can simplify to 5/1 which is the same as 5.
4) Celebrate that you can now add improper fractions.
