    What is 7/12 plus 3/10 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/12
    Fraction B: 3/10

    What to be found?
    7/12+3/10 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/12 and 3/10.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 7/12 and 3/10 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 7/12 and 3/10 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 7/12 and 3/10:
    The LCM of 12 and 10 is 60.


    step 4 Write the fractions 7/12 and 3/10 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =7/12+3/10
    =(7 x 60)/(12 x 60)+(3 x 60)/(10 x 60)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =35/60+18/60


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/60 x (35/1+18/1)
    =1/60 x (35 + 18)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/60 x 53
    =53/60
    7/12+3/10=53/60

    Hence,
    7/12 plus 3/10 equals to 53/60 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/12
    Fraction B: 3/10

    What to be found?
    7/12+3/10 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/12 and 3/10.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (7 x 10), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (3 x 12), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (12 x 10) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (7 x 10) + (3 x 12)/(12 x 10)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (70 + 36)/120
    = 106/120
    = 53/60
    7/12+3/10 = 53/60
    Hence,
    7/12 plus 3/10 = 53/60
