I think these are meant to be mixed fractions and not multiplication.

\(3\frac{4}{6}+4\frac{5}{6}\)

Let's convert to fractions 

3*6+4/6

4*6+5/6

Thus we have:

\(\frac{22}{6}+\frac{29}{6}\) The same denominator we add the numerator 

\(\frac{22+29}{6}=\frac{51}{6}\) Now the asker may want it presented as a mixed number

We know that 6 can go 

6*8=48 which is closest to 51 

so 

\(8\frac{3}{6}\)

Further, simplify

\(8\frac{1}{2}\)  (This is equal to 17/2 , which is a simplified fraction of 51/6 if you are wondering)
