5-64.

Add or subtract the following pairs of fractions and mixed numbers.

1. $\quad \frac { 5 } { 6 } + \frac { 2 } { 3 }$

• $\frac{5}{6}+\frac{4}{6}$

1. $\quad \frac { 7 } { 8 } - \frac { 1 } { 2 }$

• Which Giant One should you use to make both numbers have 8 in the denominator?

1. $1 \frac { 2 } { 3 } + 1 \frac { 1 } { 4 }$

• $\frac{5}{3}+\frac{5}{4}$

1. $2 \frac { 1 } { 3 } - 1 \frac { 5 } { 6 }$

• $\frac{1}{2}$

• Can you show why this makes sense with a diagram?
