Now that the fractions have been changed the sum has now become 3/6 plus 2/6. This will mean that the answer is 5/6.

Once you know how to do these sums it is actually quite an easy thing to work out as long as you take your time and work through it sensibly.

You will need to follow the process from the first stage right through. The first part of the process is to work with the last common multiple of the denominators. These are the numbers on the bottoms of the fractions. Once you have worked this part out you then need to multiply the top number by the same value as that used for the bottom. Hopefully, these sums will be a bit clearer to you. They really are very easy when you are aware of what you actually have to do.

When these sums are worked out in a logical order they are actually very easy to get the sum worked out. In order to be able to calculate this type of sum you will need to be able to do your times tables so that you can work out the new parts that make up the fractions for the sum.
