Learn how to find what is 1/2 plus 2/14 in fraction form just in a few minutes. We have covered the easiest method to write 1/2 + 2/14 as a fraction and decimal.

Summary: __1/2 plus 2/14__

Since both the fractions have the unequal denominators, you have to find the equivalent fractions for 1/2 and 2/14 having identical denominators before starting adding the fractions. Find the LCM of denominators, 14 is the LCM of 2 and 14. Multiply the LCM 14 with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions (1/2 x 14/14) + (2/14 x 14/14) and simplify further in order to have the common denominators. By simplifying the fraction addition expression becomes 9/14.

1/2 + 2/14 = (?)

1/2 + 2/14 = [(1 x 14) + (2 x 2)]/(2 x 14)

= (14 + 4)/28

= 18/28

= (2 x 9)/(2 x 14)

= 9/14

1/2 + 2/14 = 9/14

1/2 is a fraction as an addend,

2/14 is a fraction as an addend,

9/14 is the sum of 1/2 and 2/14.

1/2 + 2/14 = 9/14

9/14 = 0.6429

1/2+2/14 as a decimal is 0.6429

0.6429 is the sum of 1/2 and 2/14.

The below workout with step by step calculation shows how to find the equivalent fraction between 1/2 and 2/14 by adding two fractions with different, unequal or unlike denominators. The sum in fraction form for 1/2 plus 2/14 can be obtained by using anyone of the two methods below.

1. LCM method

2. Cross multiplication method.

**1/2+2/14 using LCM Method:**

What is 1/2 plus 2/14 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:__Input:__

Fraction A: 1/2

Fraction B: 2/14__What to be found?__

1/2+2/14 = ?

Find what's the sum of 1/2 and 2/14.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/2 and 2/14 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/2 and 2/14 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 2/14:

The LCM of 2 and 14 is 14.

step 4 Write the fractions 1/2 and 2/14 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.

=1/2+2/14

=(1 x 14)/(2 x 14)+(2 x 14)/(14 x 14)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:

=7/14+2/14

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:

=1/14 x (7/1+2/1)

=1/14 x (7 + 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:

=1/14 x 9

=9/14

1/2+2/14=9/14

Hence,

1/2 plus 2/14 equals to **9/14** in fraction.

**1/2+2/14 using Cross Multiplication Method:**

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:__Input:__

Fraction A: 1/2

Fraction B: 2/14__What to be found?__

1/2+2/14 = ?

Find what's the sum of 1/2 and 2/14.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (1 x 14), 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 14) and rewrite the equation as like the below:

= (1 x 14) + (2 x 2)/(2 x 14)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:

= (14 + 4)/28

= 18/28

= 9/14

1/2+2/14 = 9/14

Hence,

1/2 plus 2/14 = **9/14**
