    What is 6/7 plus 4/6 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 6/7
    Fraction B: 4/6

    What to be found?
    6/7+4/6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 6/7 and 4/6.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 6/7 and 4/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 6/7 and 4/6 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 6/7 and 4/6:
    The LCM of 7 and 6 is 42.


    step 4 Write the fractions 6/7 and 4/6 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =6/7+4/6
    =(6 x 42)/(7 x 42)+(4 x 42)/(6 x 42)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =36/42+28/42


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/42 x (36/1+28/1)
    =1/42 x (36 + 28)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/42 x 64
    = 64/42
    =32/21
    6/7+4/6=32/21

    Hence,
    6/7 plus 4/6 equals to 32/21 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 6/7
    Fraction B: 4/6

    What to be found?
    6/7+4/6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 6/7 and 4/6.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (6 x 6), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (4 x 7), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (7 x 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (6 x 6) + (4 x 7)/(7 x 6)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (36 + 28)/42
    = 64/42
    = 32/21
    6/7+4/6 = 32/21
    Hence,
    6/7 plus 4/6 = 32/21
