We can add the amounts:
434+223
4+34+2+23
6+34+23
At this point, I need to find a common denominator (which is 12):
6+34(1)+23(1)
6+34(33)+23(44)
6+912+812
6+1712
6+1212+512
6+1+512
7512 yrds

434+223
Multiply 4 and 4 to get 16.
16+34+2×3+23
Add 16 and 3 to get 19.
194+2×3+23
Multiply 2 and 3 to get 6.
194+6+23
Add 6 and 2 to get 8.
194+83
Least common multiple of 4 and 3 is 12. Convert 194 and 84 to fractions with denominator 12.
5712+3212
Since 5712 and 3212 have the same denominator, add them by adding their numerators.
57+3212
Add 57 and 32 to get 89.
8912
