30/54 + 36/54 = 66/54

Step-by-step explanation: Find a common denominator

Here, it looks like we can multiply the 9 × 6 to get 54

Then we divide the original denominator into the common denominator, then multiply the numerator by the quotient to get an equivalent fraction to add.

Starting with the 5/9   54÷9 = 6   The quotient, 6 multiplies by the numerator 5

6 × 5 = 30  That is the new numerator.

30/54 is the equivalent fraction for 5/9

Now 4/6   54÷6 = 9   Multiply this quotient, 9 times the numerator 4

9 × 4 = 36  That is the new numerator

36/54 is the equivalent fraction for 4/6

Add the numerators of the equivalent fractions keep the denominator the same:

30/54 + 36/54 = 66/54

It is possible to simplify this process. 4/6 is equivalent to 2/3 or 6/9

We could add  5/9 + 6/9 to get 11/9

66 and 54 are both divisible by 6, so 66/54 can be simplified to 11/9 or the mixed number 1²/₉
