Step 1

Can you include yet? Nope! The platform don"t match. We require a usual denominator. So following we take both denominators and multiply them. Next, take it each numerator and also multiply the by the denominator of the various other term.

You are watching: 1/5 + 2/3

So, we multiply 1 through 3, and get 3, then we multiply 5 by 3 and get 15.

*

Now for the second term. You main point 2 through 5, and get 10, then multiply 5 by 3 and also get 15.

*

We now have actually a brand-new problem, the looks choose this:

3
15
+10
15

Step 2

Since our denominators match, us can add the numerators.

3 + 10 = 13

Answer:

13
15

Step 3

Now, carry out we must simplify this fraction?

First, us attempt to division it by 2...

No good. So following you try the next prime number, i m sorry is 3...

No good. So following you try the following prime number, i beg your pardon is 5...

No good. So next you shot the next prime number, which is 7...

No good. So next you try the next prime number, i m sorry is 11...

No good. So following you shot the next prime number, i beg your pardon is 13...

No good. So next you shot the following prime number, i m sorry is 17...

No good. 17 is larger than 13. For this reason we"re excellent reducing.

And we"re done! Here"s the final answer come 1/5 + 2/31
