    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.

    step 3For unlike fractions addition, find the LCM (least common multiple) of both denominators of fractions 2/3 and 2/6:
    The LCM of 3 and 6 is 6.


    step 4 Write the fractions 2/3 and 2/6 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =2/3+2/6
    =(2 x 6)/(3 x 6)+(2 x 6)/(6 x 6)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =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
    =1/1
    2/3+2/6=1/1

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



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    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 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (2 x 6), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 3), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (3 x 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (2 x 6) + (2 x 3)/(3 x 6)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (12 + 6)/18
    = 18/18
    = 1/1
    2/3+2/6 = 1/1
    Hence,
    2/3 plus 2/6 = 1/1
