    What is 2/7 plus 2 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 2/7
    Fraction B: 2/1

    What to be found?
    2/7+2 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 2/7 and 2.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 2/7 and 2 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 2/7 and 2 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 2/7 and 2:
    The LCM of 7 and 1 is 7.


    step 4 Write the fractions 2/7 and 2 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =2/7+2
    =(2 x 7)/(7 x 7)+(2 x 7)/(1 x 7)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =2/7+14/7


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/7 x (2/1+14/1)
    =1/7 x (2 + 14)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/7 x 16
    =16/7
    2/7+2=16/7

    Hence,
    2/7 plus 2 equals to 16/7 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 2/7
    Fraction B: 2/1

    What to be found?
    2/7+2 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 2/7 and 2.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (2 x 1), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 7), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (7 x 1) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (2 x 1) + (2 x 7)/(7 x 1)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (2 + 14)/7
    2/7+2 = 16/7
    Hence,
    2/7 plus 2 = 16/7
