**Adding Mixed Numbers**Basic concepts and methods for adding mixed numbers.**Definition**• Mixed Number = A mixed number is a whole number with a fraction attached. • Example = 3 4/5, This is read as three and four fifths.**Addition of mixed numbers with like denominators.**If James has two and one eighth pizzas and Jane has two and five eighths pizzas, how many pizza’s do they have together. 2 1/8 + 2 5/8 Step 1: Add the Fractions 1/8 + 5/8 6/8**Addition of mixed numbers with like denominators.**If James has two and one eighth pizzas and Jane has two and five eighths pizzas, how many pizza’s do they have together. Step 2: Add the whole numbers 2 + 2 4**Addition of mixed numbers with unlike denominators.**If James has two and one eighth pizzas and Jane has two and three fourths pizzas, how many pizza’s do they have together. 2 1/8 + 2 3/4 1/8 + 6/8 Step 1:Find a common denominator. For this problem we will use 8, since 8 is a multiple of 4. 1/8 + 6/8 Step 2: Add the Fractions 7/8**Addition of mixed numbers with unlike denominators.**If James has two and one eighth pizzas and Jane has two and three fourths pizzas, how many pizza’s do they have together. Step 3: Add the whole numbers 2 + 2 4**Addition of mixed numbers with unlike denominators.**Step 4: Combine the whole number and the fraction. 2 + 7/8 2 7/8**Adding Mixed Numbers**Presented By: Michael Lee Ratcliff II
