We can add the amounts:

$4\frac{3}{4}+2\frac{2}{3}$

$4+\frac{3}{4}+2+\frac{2}{3}$

$6+\frac{3}{4}+\frac{2}{3}$

At this point, I need to find a common denominator (which is 12):

$6+\frac{3}{4}\left(1\right)+\frac{2}{3}\left(1\right)$

$6+\frac{3}{4}\left(\frac{3}{3}\right)+\frac{2}{3}\left(\frac{4}{4}\right)$

$6+\frac{9}{12}+\frac{8}{12}$

$6+\frac{17}{12}$

$6+\frac{12}{12}+\frac{5}{12}$

$6+1+\frac{5}{12}$

$7\frac{5}{12}$ yrds

At this point, I need to find a common denominator (which is 12):

Multiply 4 and 4 to get 16.

Add 16 and 3 to get 19.

Multiply 2 and 3 to get 6.

Add 6 and 2 to get 8.

Least common multiple of 4 and 3 is 12. Convert

Since

Add 57 and 32 to get 89.
