    What is 9/10 plus 3/5 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 9/10
    Fraction B: 3/5

    What to be found?
    9/10+3/5 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 9/10 and 3/5.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 9/10 and 3/5 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 9/10 and 3/5 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 9/10 and 3/5:
    The LCM of 10 and 5 is 10.


    step 4 Write the fractions 9/10 and 3/5 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =9/10+3/5
    =(9 x 10)/(10 x 10)+(3 x 10)/(5 x 10)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =9/10+6/10


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/10 x (9/1+6/1)
    =1/10 x (9 + 6)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/10 x 15
    = 15/10
    =3/2
    9/10+3/5=3/2

    Hence,
    9/10 plus 3/5 equals to 3/2 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 9/10
    Fraction B: 3/5

    What to be found?
    9/10+3/5 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 9/10 and 3/5.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (9 x 5), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (3 x 10), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (10 x 5) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (9 x 5) + (3 x 10)/(10 x 5)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (45 + 30)/50
    = 75/50
    = 3/2
    9/10+3/5 = 3/2
    Hence,
    9/10 plus 3/5 = 3/2
