Step 1

We can"t include two fractions with different denominators (the bottom number). So you need to get a typical denominator - both bottom numbers should match. To perform this, you"ll main point the denominators times each other... However the numerators need to change, too. They get multiplied through the other term"s denominator.

You are watching: What is 2/3 of 3/4

So we multiply 2 by 4, and get 8, then we multiply 3 by 4 and also get 12.

*

Do the exact same for the second term. Us multiply 3 by 3, and also get 9, then multiply 3 by 4 and also get 12.

*

So currently our fountain look choose this:

8
12
+9
12

Step 2

Since our platform match, us can include the numerators.

8 + 9 = 17

Now we have an answer.

17
12

Step 3

Last of all, we should simplify the fraction, if possible. Deserve to it be diminished to a easier fraction?

To discover out, we try dividing that by 2...

Nope! So currently we try the next greatest prime number, 3...

Nope! So currently we shot the next biggest prime number, 5...

Nope! So currently we try the next greatest prime number, 7...

Nope! So currently we try the next greatest prime number, 11...

Nope! So currently we shot the next biggest prime number, 13...

No good. 13 is bigger than 12. For this reason we"re excellent reducing.

There you have actually it! Here"s the last answer come 2/3 + 3/42
3
+3
4
=17
