Sure, I can help you with that! Here is an adding fractions calculator:

To add two fractions together, follow these steps:

- Find a common denominator by multiplying the denominators of the fractions together.
- Convert both fractions so they have the same denominator.
- Add the numerators together.
- Simplify the fraction, if possible.
- For example, let’s add 1/4 and 3/8:

- The common denominator is 4 x 8 = 32.
- Convert 1/4 to 8/32 and 3/8 to 12/32.
- Add the numerators: 8 + 12 = 20.
- Simplify the fraction: 20/32 can be reduced by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor, which is 4. This gives us 5/8.

So 1/4 + 3/8 = 5/8.

## To add fractions, you need to follow these steps:

- Find the least common multiple (LCM) of the denominators of the fractions.
- Convert the fractions so that they all have the same denominator as the LCM.
- Add the numerators of the fractions.
- Simplify the resulting fraction by finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and denominator and dividing both by it.

For example, let’s say you want to add 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4. The LCM of the denominators is 12, so we need to convert the fractions to have a denominator of 12:

1/2 = 6/12

1/3 = 4/12

1/4 = 3/12

Now we can add the numerators:

6/12 + 4/12 + 3/12 = 13/12

Finally, we simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their GCD, which is 1:

13/12 = 1 1/12
