    What is 4/9 plus 1/3 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 4/9
    Fraction B: 1/3

    What to be found?
    4/9+1/3 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 4/9 and 1/3.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 4/9 and 1/3 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 4/9 and 1/3 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

    The LCM of 9 and 3 is 9.


    step 4 Write the fractions 4/9 and 1/3 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =4/9+1/3
    =(4 x 9)/(9 x 9)+(1 x 9)/(3 x 9)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =4/9+3/9


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/9 x (4/1+3/1)
    =1/9 x (4 + 3)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/9 x 7
    =7/9
    4/9+1/3=7/9

    Hence,
    4/9 plus 1/3 equals to 7/9 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 4/9
    Fraction B: 1/3

    What to be found?
    4/9+1/3 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 4/9 and 1/3.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (4 x 3), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (1 x 9), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (9 x 3) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (4 x 3) + (1 x 9)/(9 x 3)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (12 + 9)/27
    = 21/27
    = 7/9
    4/9+1/3 = 7/9
    Hence,
    4/9 plus 1/3 = 7/9
