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)
