    What is 7/8 plus 6 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/8
    Fraction B: 6/1

    What to be found?
    7/8+6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/8 and 6.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 7/8 and 6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 7/8 and 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 7/8 and 6:
    The LCM of 8 and 1 is 8.


    step 4 Write the fractions 7/8 and 6 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =7/8+6
    =(7 x 8)/(8 x 8)+(6 x 8)/(1 x 8)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =7/8+48/8


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/8 x (7/1+48/1)
    =1/8 x (7 + 48)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/8 x 55
    =55/8
    7/8+6=55/8

    Hence,
    7/8 plus 6 equals to 55/8 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 7/8
    Fraction B: 6/1

    What to be found?
    7/8+6 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 7/8 and 6.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (7 x 1), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (6 x 8), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (8 x 1) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (7 x 1) + (6 x 8)/(8 x 1)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (7 + 48)/8
    7/8+6 = 55/8
    Hence,
    7/8 plus 6 = 55/8
