    What is 6/10 plus 5/9 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 6/10
    Fraction B: 5/9

    What to be found?
    6/10+5/9 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 6/10 and 5/9.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 6/10 and 5/9 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 6/10 and 5/9 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 6/10 and 5/9:
    The LCM of 10 and 9 is 90.


    step 4 Write the fractions 6/10 and 5/9 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =6/10+5/9
    =(6 x 90)/(10 x 90)+(5 x 90)/(9 x 90)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =54/90+50/90


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/90 x (54/1+50/1)
    =1/90 x (54 + 50)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/90 x 104
    = 104/90
    =52/45
    6/10+5/9=52/45

    Hence,
    6/10 plus 5/9 equals to 52/45 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 6/10
    Fraction B: 5/9

    What to be found?
    6/10+5/9 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 6/10 and 5/9.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (6 x 9), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (5 x 10), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (10 x 9) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (6 x 9) + (5 x 10)/(10 x 9)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (54 + 50)/90
    = 104/90
    = 52/45
    6/10+5/9 = 52/45
    Hence,
    6/10 plus 5/9 = 52/45
