## When the fractional parts of both mixed fractions are like fractions

To add mixed fractions with like fractional parts, say 4 2

7

??? 6 4

7

,we will use the following steps:

Step 1: Add the whole part of both the fractions.

Here, the whole part of 4 2 is 4 and the whole part of 6 4 is 6. So, the addition of 4 and

7 7

6 is 10.

Step 2: Add the fractional part of both the fractions.

Here, the fractional part of

4 2 ?? 2 ??? ?ℎ? ?????????? ???? ?? 6 4

4 2 4 2 4

?? . ??, ?ℎ? ???????? ?? ??? ?? + =

7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7

2+4 = 6.

7 7

Step 3: Using the result of step 1 as the whole part and the result of step 2 as the fractional part, form a mixed fraction. This mixed fraction is the sum of the given mixed fractions.

Thus, 10 is the whole part and 4 6 is the fractional part. So, the result of

7

4 2 + 6 4

7 7

6

?? 10

7

## When the fractional parts of both mixed fractions are unlike fractions

To add mixed fractions with like fractional parts, say 4 2 ??? 6 1

,

5 3

we will use the following steps:

Step 1: Add the whole part of both the fractions.

Here, the whole part of 4 2 is 4 and the whole part of 6 1 is 6. So, the addition of 4 and 6

5 3

is 10.
