Sara has yards of red fleece and yards of blue fleece fabric. How many yards of red and blue fleece fabric does she have altogether?
Answer & Explanation
We can add the amounts:
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 to fractions with denominator 12.
Since have the same denominator, add them by adding their numerators.
Add 57 and 32 to get 89.
