how do you do fractions

+5

Find a common denominator 

 

2/3+4/5

the CD is 15 because 3 and 5 both go into them.

find how many time the bottom part of the first fraction can go into there. 

in this case, 3 can go into 15, 5 times

so then youll mutiple your top number by 5

 

repeat this for the next fraction

 

Once you have your four fractions, subtract the top of the two new fractions

in this case it'll be 10 and 12 

=2

 

then put that over 15 

 

=2/15
