### How to add Fractions

- Make sure the denominators (the bottom numbers) are the same.
- Add the numerators (the top numbers). Put the answer over the denominator.

The algebraic formula for adding fractions is: a/b + c/d = ad+bc/bd

### Examples:

**Same Denominator:**

1. Add the top numbers and put the answer over the same denominator.

2. Simplify the fraction.** Different Denominator:**1. Make the denominators same.
