What is 1/4 plus 1/9 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 1/4
Fraction B: 1/9

What to be found?
1/4+1/9 = ?
Find what's the sum of 1/4 and 1/9.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/4 and 1/9 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/4 and 1/9 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

=9/36+4/36

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/36 x (9/1+4/1)
=1/36 x (9 + 4)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/36 x 13
=13/36
1/4+1/9=13/36

Hence,
1/4 plus 1/9 equals to 13/36 in fraction.
