Step 1:

$\frac{2}{5}$ + $\frac{3}{8}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.

LCD is 5 × 8 = 40.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{16}{40}$ + $\frac{15}{40}$ = $\frac{(16+15)}{40}$ = $\frac{31}{40}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{2}{5}$ + $\frac{3}{8}$ = $\frac{31}{40}$

Q 2 - Subtract $\frac{5}{8}$$\frac{7}{12} ### Answer : D ### Explanation Step 1: \frac{5}{8}$$\frac{7}{12}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 24.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{15}{24}$$\frac{14}{24} = \frac{(15-14)}{24} = \frac{1}{24} Step 3: So, \frac{5}{8}$$\frac{7}{12}$ = $\frac{1}{24}$

### Explanation

Step 1:

$\frac{2}{7}$ + $\frac{3}{8}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.

LCD is 7 × 8 = 56.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{16}{56}$ + $\frac{21}{56}$ = $\frac{(16+21)}{56}$ = $\frac{37}{56}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{2}{7}$ + $\frac{3}{8}$ = $\frac{37}{56}$

Q 4 - Subtract $\frac{6}{5}$$\frac{5}{7} ### Answer : B ### Explanation Step 1: \frac{6}{5}$$\frac{5}{7}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.

LCD is 5 × 7 = 35.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{42}{35}$$\frac{25}{35} = \frac{(42-25)}{35} = \frac{17}{35} Step 3: So, \frac{6}{5}$$\frac{5}{7}$ = $\frac{17}{35}$

### Explanation

Step 1:

$\frac{2}{7}$ + $\frac{5}{9}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.

LCD is 7 × 9 = 63.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

$\frac{18}{63}$ + $\frac{35}{63}$ = $\frac{(18+35)}{63}$ = $\frac{53}{63}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{2}{7}$ + $\frac{5}{9}$ = $\frac{53}{63}$

Q 6 - Subtract $\frac{5}{7}$ - $\frac{7}{11}$

### Explanation

Step 1:

$\frac{5}{7}$ - $\frac{7}{11}$

Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD.

LCD is 7 × 11 = 77.

Step 2:

Rewriting as equivalent fractions

### Explanation

Step 1:

$\frac{7}{8}$$\frac{9}{12} Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 24. Step 2: Rewriting as equivalent fractions \frac{21}{24}$$\frac{18}{24}$ = $\frac{(21-18)}{24}$ = $\frac{3}{24}$ = $\frac{1}{8}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{7}{8}$$\frac{9}{12} = \frac{1}{8} ### Answer : A ### Explanation Step 1: \frac{3}{5} + \frac{2}{8} Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 5 × 8 = 40 Step 2: Rewriting as equivalent fractions \frac{24}{40} + \frac{10}{40} = \frac{(24+10)}{40} = \frac{34}{40} = \frac{17}{20} Step 3: So, \frac{3}{5} + \frac{2}{8} = \frac{17}{20} Q 10 - Subtract \frac{7}{8} - \frac{8}{11} ### Answer : B ### Explanation Step 1: \frac{7}{8} - \frac{8}{11} Here the fractions have unlike denominators. So we find LCD. LCD is 8 × 11 = 88 Step 2: Rewriting as equivalent fractions \frac{77}{88}$$\frac{64}{88}$ = $\frac{(77-64)}{88}$ = $\frac{13}{88}$

Step 3:

So, $\frac{7}{8}$ - $\frac{8}{11}$ = $\frac{13}{88}$
