1 3/4 + 2 1/3
  = 1 9/12 + 2 4/12    (we have renamed the fractions so we can add them)
  = (1+2) + (9/12 + 4/12)
  = 3 + 13/12    (here is our sum)
  = 3 + (12 + 1)/12    (now, we are renaming the improper fraction)
  = 3 + 12/12 + 1/12    (into an integer part and a fraction part)
  = 3 + 1 + 1/12    (here we show the integer and fraction)
  = 4 + 1/12    (the integers are added to complete the renaming of the integer part)
  = 4 1/12    (here we rename the sum as a mixed number)
