What is 1/2 plus 2/11 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 1/2
Fraction B: 2/11

What to be found?
1/2+2/11 = ?
Find what's the sum of 1/2 and 2/11.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/2 and 2/11 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/2 and 2/11 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

The LCM of 2 and 11 is 22.

step 4 Write the fractions 1/2 and 2/11 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=1/2+2/11
=(1 x 22)/(2 x 22)+(2 x 22)/(11 x 22)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=11/22+4/22

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/22 x (11/1+4/1)
=1/22 x (11 + 4)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/22 x 15
=15/22
1/2+2/11=15/22

Hence,
1/2 plus 2/11 equals to 15/22 in fraction.
