Perform the indicated operations and simplify:
To calculate: The simplified form of the expression by performing the indicated operation.
The provided expression is .
Equivalent signed fractions:
The equivalent signed fraction shows that a negative fraction can be written in three different but equivalent forms.
Is the customary form.
Adding two numbers with like signs includes:
In order to add two positive numbers, their absolute values must be added-up. And as a result, a positive value will be obtained.
And in order to add two negative numbers, their absolute values must be added-up and a negative sign should be placed before the result.
Consider the expression:
First, change the mixed number to fraction.
Now, change the given expression to customary form. That is,
When fractions having different denominator are to be added; first step is to find the least common denominator (LCD)
