What is 2/3 plus 2/6 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 2/3
Fraction B: 2/6

What to be found?
2/3+2/6 = ?
Find what's the sum of 2/3 and 2/6.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 2/3 and 2/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 2/3 and 2/6 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

=4/6+2/6

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/6 x (4/1+2/1)
=1/6 x (4 + 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/6 x 6
= 6/6
=1
2/3+2/6=1

Hence,
2/3 plus 2/6 equals to 1 in fraction.
