Here, the whole part of 4 5 is 4 and the whole part of 6 4 is 6.

7 7

So, the addition of 4 and 6 is 10.

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

Here, the fractional part of 4 5 is 5 and the fractional part of 6 4 is 4

7 7 7 7

So, the addition of 5 and 4 ?? 5 + 4 = 5+4 = 9.

7 7 7 7 7 7
