**Add**

**Write your answers in simplest form.**

Question 1.

\(\frac{2}{5}\) + \(\frac{2}{5}\) = _____________

Answer:

The denominator of the given fractions are the same. So we have to add the numerators.

\(\frac{2}{5}\) + \(\frac{2}{5}\) = \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Question 2.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1}{3}\) = _____________

Answer:

The denominator of the given fractions are the same. So we have to add the numerators.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Question 3.

\(\frac{2}{8}\) + \(\frac{4}{8}\) = ______________

Answer:

The denominator of the given fractions are the same. So we have to add the numerators.

\(\frac{2}{8}\) + \(\frac{4}{8}\) = \(\frac{2+4}{8}\) = \(\frac{6}{8}\) = \(\frac{3}{4}\)

\(\frac{2}{8}\) + \(\frac{4}{8}\) = \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Question 4.

Jeremy and Rosa are solving a math problem. They add \(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{2}{3}\). Jeremy says the answer is \(\frac{3}{3}\). Rosa says the answer is 1. Who is correct? Why?

Answer:

Given

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{2}{3}\)

The denominator of the given fractions are the same. So we have to add the numerators.

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{1+2}{3}\) = \(\frac{3}{3}\) = 1

So, Rosa is correct.
