Step 1

We can"t include two fountain with different denominators (the bottom number). So you need to get a common denominator - both bottom numbers need to match. To execute this, you"ll main point the denominators times each other... However the numerators need to change, too. They get multiplied by the other term"s denominator.

You are watching: 1/8 plus 1/8 equals

So we multiply 1 by 10, and get 10, then we multiply 8 through 10 and get 80.

*

Do the very same for the 2nd term. We multiply 1 through 8, and also get 8, climate multiply 8 through 10 and also get 80.

*

So now our fountain look favor this:

10
80
+8
80

Step 2

Since our denominators match, we can include the numerators.

10 + 8 = 18

Now we have actually an answer.

18
80

Step 3

Last the all, we need to simplify the fraction, if possible. Can it be diminished to a easier fraction?

To uncover out, we try dividing it by 2...

Are both the numerator and also the denominator evenly divisible by 2? Yes! for this reason we reduce it:

18
80
÷ 2 =9
40

So far so good... Let"s shot to divide by the number again.

No good. So following you try the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 3...

No good. So next you shot the following prime number, which is 5...

No good. So next you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 7...

No good. So following you shot the following prime number, i m sorry is 11...

No good. 11 is bigger than 9. For this reason we"re done reducing.

And we"re done! Here"s the final answer to 1/8 + 1/10
1
8
+1
10
=9
40
