Here the denominator isn’t same ; so we will take the LCM

Taking the LCM will make the denominator same  ## __________

2|_8 ,12___

2|_4, 6__

2|_2,3__

2|__1 , 3_

3| 1, 1

So , the LCM is => 24

## _____________

When the denominators are same ; the numerators will also change. So , what number when multiplied by 8 gives 24 ?

The number is 3 ; so we will multiply 3 with both the numerator and denominator .  The same rule of the number which when multiplied by 12 gives 24 is followed with both the numerator and denominator.

So , finally we have got 2 numbers with same denominators.

Now it will be easy to add them.    2. Step-by-step explanation:
