Step 1

We still have different denominators (bottom numbers), though, therefore we require to acquire a usual denominator. This will certainly make the bottom number match. Multiply the denominators with each other first. Now, multiply each numerator by the other term"s denominator.

You are watching: 1/3 plus 1/4

Now we multiply 1 by 4, and get 4, then we multiply 3 through 4 and also get 12.

*

Now because that the second term. You main point 1 by 3, and get 3, climate multiply 3 by 4 and also get 12.

*

This offers us a brand-new problem that looks favor so:

4
12
+3
12

Step 2

Since our denominators match, we can include the numerators.

4 + 3 = 7

That gives us an answer of

7
12

Step 3

Can this portion be reduced?

First, us attempt to divide it through 2...

Nope! So currently we shot the next greatest prime number, 3...

Nope! So currently we try the next biggest prime number, 5...

Nope! So now we shot the next biggest prime number, 7...

Nope! So currently we shot the next greatest prime number, 11...

No good. 11 is larger than 7. Therefore we"re done reducing.

There you have it! Here"s the final answer come 1/3 + 1/41
3
+1
4
=7
12
