What is 2/4 plus 1/6 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 2/4
Fraction B: 1/6

What to be found?
2/4+1/6 = ?
Find what's the sum of 2/4 and 1/6.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 2/4 and 1/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 2/4 and 1/6 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 2/4 and 1/6:
The LCM of 4 and 6 is 12.

step 4 Write the fractions 2/4 and 1/6 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=2/4+1/6
=(2 x 12)/(4 x 12)+(1 x 12)/(6 x 12)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=6/12+2/12

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/12 x (6/1+2/1)
=1/12 x (6 + 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/12 x 8
= 8/12
=2/3
2/4+1/6=2/3

Hence,
2/4 plus 1/6 equals to 2/3 in fraction.

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 2/4
Fraction B: 1/6

What to be found?
2/4+1/6 = ?
Find what's the sum of 2/4 and 1/6.

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 (1 x 4), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (4 x 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
= (2 x 6) + (1 x 4)/(4 x 6)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
= (12 + 4)/24
= 16/24
= 2/3
2/4+1/6 = 2/3
Hence,
2/4 plus 1/6 = 2/3
