    Problem and Workout - LCM Method:
    What is 3/10 plus 1/4 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 3/10
    Fraction B: 1/4

    What to be found?
    3/10+1/4 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 3/10 and 1/4.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 3/10 and 1/4 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 3/10 and 1/4 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 3/10 and 1/4:
    The LCM of 10 and 4 is 20.


    step 4 Write the fractions 3/10 and 1/4 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =3/10+1/4
    =(3 x 20)/(10 x 20)+(1 x 20)/(4 x 20)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =6/20+5/20


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/20 x (6/1+5/1)
    =1/20 x (6 + 5)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/20 x 11
    =11/20
    3/10+1/4=11/20

    Hence,
    3/10 plus 1/4 equals to 11/20 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 3/10
    Fraction B: 1/4

    What to be found?
    3/10+1/4 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 3/10 and 1/4.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (3 x 4), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (1 x 10), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (10 x 4) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (3 x 4) + (1 x 10)/(10 x 4)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (12 + 10)/40
    = 22/40
    = 11/20
    3/10+1/4 = 11/20
    Hence,
    3/10 plus 1/4 = 11/20
