    What is 7/10 plus 1/6 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/10
    Fraction B: 1/6

    What to be found?
    7/10+1/6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/10 and 1/6.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 7/10 and 1/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 7/10 and 1/6 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 7/10 and 1/6:
    The LCM of 10 and 6 is 30.


    step 4 Write the fractions 7/10 and 1/6 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =7/10+1/6
    =(7 x 30)/(10 x 30)+(1 x 30)/(6 x 30)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =21/30+5/30


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/30 x (21/1+5/1)
    =1/30 x (21 + 5)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/30 x 26
    = 26/30
    =13/15
    7/10+1/6=13/15

    Hence,
    7/10 plus 1/6 equals to 13/15 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/10
    Fraction B: 1/6

    What to be found?
    7/10+1/6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/10 and 1/6.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (7 x 6), 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 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (7 x 6) + (1 x 10)/(10 x 6)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (42 + 10)/60
    = 52/60
    = 13/15
    7/10+1/6 = 13/15
    Hence,
    7/10 plus 1/6 = 13/15
