# Adding Fractions

Fractions are the Numbers which we can write in form of one number divided by another number. Here we express it as $\frac{p}{q}$, so we write ‘p’ as the numerator and ‘q’ as the denominator. We know that all the mathematical operators can be performed on the Fractions. Here we will work on adding fractions.

To learn how to add fractions, we need to first convert the mixed fractions to improper fractions. We say that the addition of the fractions with different denominators is possible, if we make the denominators same. Also if we add 0 to any fraction, the result remains the same fraction.

Example 1:
$\frac{3}{5}$ + 0 = $\frac{3}{5}$

Example 2:
$\frac{7}{3}$ + $\frac{4}{3}$ = $\frac{11}{3}$

Example 3:
$\frac{9}{2}$ + $\frac{7}{5}$ = $\frac{9*5}{2*5}$ + $\frac{7*2}{5*2}$ = $\frac{45}{10}$ + $\frac{14}{10}$ = $\frac{59}{10}$

Example 4:
$\frac{12}{7}$ + 1 = $\frac{12}{7}$ + $\frac{7}{7}$ = $\frac{19}{7}$
