What is 1/9 plus 5 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 1/9
Fraction B: 5/1

What to be found?
1/9+5 = ?
Find what's the sum of 1/9 and 5.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/9 and 5 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/9 and 5 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

=(1 x 9)/(9 x 9)+(5 x 9)/(1 x 9)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=1/9+45/9

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/9 x (1/1+45/1)
=1/9 x (1 + 45)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/9 x 46
=46/9
1/9+5=46/9

Hence,
1/9 plus 5 equals to 46/9 in fraction.
