    What is 5/6 plus 8/10 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 5/6
    Fraction B: 8/10

    What to be found?
    5/6+8/10 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 5/6 and 8/10.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 5/6 and 8/10 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 5/6 and 8/10 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 5/6 and 8/10:
    The LCM of 6 and 10 is 30.


    step 4 Write the fractions 5/6 and 8/10 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =5/6+8/10
    =(5 x 30)/(6 x 30)+(8 x 30)/(10 x 30)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =25/30+24/30


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/30 x (25/1+24/1)
    =1/30 x (25 + 24)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/30 x 49
    =49/30
    5/6+8/10=49/30

    Hence,
    5/6 plus 8/10 equals to 49/30 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 5/6
    Fraction B: 8/10

    What to be found?
    5/6+8/10 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 5/6 and 8/10.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (5 x 10), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (8 x 6), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (6 x 10) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (5 x 10) + (8 x 6)/(6 x 10)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (50 + 48)/60
    = 98/60
    = 49/30
    5/6+8/10 = 49/30
    Hence,
    5/6 plus 8/10 = 49/30
