### Subject: Basic Math

Add these two fractions: 2 3 --- and --- 5 15

First, you need to find the common denominator of both of these fractions. To do so, you would need to find a number that both of the denominators (the bottom number of the fraction) will divide into. In this case, the common denominator is 15. To make our first fraction have a denominator of 15, we must understand how many times 5 can be divided into 15 -- the answer is 3. Therefore, we will multiply the numerator (the top number of a fraction) by 3 and the denominator by 3. We end up with the fraction 6 --- 15 Now we can add our fractions. To add these two fractions, you should add the two numerators, and then add the two denominators. The set up should look like this: 6 3 9 --- + --- = --- 15 15 15 The correct way to state fractions is to have them in their simplest forms. This means that the numerator cannot be divided into the denominator. In the case of our answer, we need to simplify the fraction by the number 3. Our new fraction, and final answers, is: 3 --- 5 (This answer is because we divided the numerator by 3 (9/3), creating the answer 3, and we divided the denominator by 3 (15/3) creating the answer 5)
