    Problem and Workout - LCM Method:
    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.

    step 3For unlike fractions addition, find the LCM (least common multiple) of both denominators of fractions 1/2 and 2/11:
    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.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    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 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (1 x 11), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 2), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (2 x 11) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (1 x 11) + (2 x 2)/(2 x 11)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (11 + 4)/22
    1/2+2/11 = 15/22
    Hence,
    1/2 plus 2/11 = 15/22
