ADD FRACTIONS Question 1

A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator


1  +  1  =
2      2
Step 1: Since each fraction has the same denominator 2, we can write the following:
1 + 1
   2
Step 2: Now, we can add the 2 numbers in the numerator of our new fraction and we get the following:
2
2
Step 3: Since the numerator 2 and the denominator 2 are the same we get:
1
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a whole number because the sum of one half and one half is a whole or the number 1.
1  +  1  =  1
2      2
