Step 1

We can"t include two fractions with different denominators (the bottom number). Therefore you require to get a usual denominator - both bottom numbers need to match. To execute this, you"ll main point the platform times each other... Yet the numerators have to change, too. They gain multiplied by the other term"s denominator.

You are watching: 1/8 plus 1/8

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

*

Do the same for the second term. We multiply 1 by 8, and get 8, then multiply 8 by 10 and also get 80.

*

So currently our fractions look favor this:

10
80
+8
80

Step 2

Since our platform match, we can add the numerators.

10 + 8 = 18

Now we have actually an answer.

18
80

Step 3

Last of all, we should simplify the fraction, if possible. Have the right to it be decreased to a less complicated fraction?

To find out, we try dividing the by 2...

Are both the numerator and the denominator same divisible by 2? Yes! for this reason we minimize it:

18
80
÷ 2 =9
40

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

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

No good. So following you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 5...

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

No good. So next you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 11...

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

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