1-118.

Find each sum.

1. $\frac { 3 } { 5 } + \frac { 1 } { 3 }$

Find a common denominator.

By multiplying the first fraction by $\frac{3}{3}$ and the second fraction by $\frac{5}{5}$ you will achieve a common denominator of $15$.

Now, you should be able to add the numerators together to get the correct sum.

$\frac{9}{15}+\frac{5}{15}=\frac{14}{15}$

1. $\frac { 5 } { 7 } + \frac { 1 } { 2 }$
