= (6 + 3) ÷ 10

= 9 ÷ 10 or \(\frac{9}{10}\)

Question 3.

Answer:

Explanation:

\(\frac{5}{12}\) + \(\frac{1}{3}\)

= (5 + 4) ÷ 12

= 9 ÷ 12

= 3 ÷ 4 or \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Question 4.

Find the sum of \(\frac{1}{6}\) and \(\frac{1}{12}\).

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{12}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation:

Sum:

\(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{12}\)

= (2 + 1) ÷ 12

= 3 ÷ 12

= \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Question 5.

Add \(\frac{1}{4}\) to the answer in Exercise 4.

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{4}\) + \(\frac{1}{4}\) = 1 ÷ 2 or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Explanation:

Sum:

\(\frac{1}{4}\) + \(\frac{1}{4}\)

= (1 + 1) ÷ 4

= 2 ÷ 4

= 1 ÷ 2 or \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Question 6.

What is the sum of \(\frac{1}{8}\), \(\frac{1}{4}\) and \(\frac{3}{8}\)?

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{8}\) + \(\frac{1}{4}\) + \(\frac{3}{8}\) = 3 ÷ 4 or \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Explanation:

Sum:

\(\frac{1}{8}\) + \(\frac{1}{4}\) + \(\frac{3}{8}\)

= (1 + 2) ÷ 8 + \(\frac{3}{8}\)

= \(\frac{3}{8}\) + \(\frac{3}{8}\)

= (3 + 3) ÷ 8

= 6 ÷ 8

= 3 ÷ 4 or \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Question 7.

Add \(\frac{1}{3}\), \(\frac{3}{12}\) and \(\frac{5}{12}\)

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{3}{12}\) + \(\frac{5}{12}\) = 1.

Explanation:

Sum:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{3}{12}\) + \(\frac{5}{12}\)

= (4 + 3) ÷ 12 + \(\frac{5}{12}\)

= \(\frac{7}{12}\) + \(\frac{5}{12}\)

= (7 + 5) ÷ 12

= 12 ÷ 12

= 1.
