Unlike fraction 1/7 is converted to equivalent like fraction 2/14 and the sum of 2/14 + 3/14 = 5/14.

As given in the question,

Given fraction is equal to:

1/7=? + 3/14=?

Here there are two fractions

1/7 and 3/14

LCD( least common denominator) of 7 and 14 is equal to 14.

Now make them like fractions

1/7 is equivalent to

( 1/7) × ( 2/2) = 2/ 14
