    2/4+1/6 equals to
    2/4 + 1/6 = (?)
    2/4 + 1/6 = [(2 x 6) + (1 x 4)]/(4 x 6)
    = (12 + 4)/24
    = 16/24
    = (8 x 2)/(8 x 3)
    = 2/3
    2/4 + 1/6 = 2/3
    2/4 plus 1/6 is equal to 2/3

    where
    2/4 is a fraction as an addend,
    1/6 is a fraction as an addend,
    2/3 is the sum of 2/4 and 1/6.

    Problem and Workout - LCM Method:
    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.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    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
