Q:
# Madison planted her garden with 2 5 marigolds and 3 7 tulips. What fraction of the plants in the garden are either marigolds or tulips?

Accepted Solution

A:

To answer this you will combine both fractions together to get a total. The denominators are not the same so you will need to create equivalent fractions for both with a common denominator. The denominator is like the units, and to be able to add them they must be the same.

2/5 + 3/7

2/5 = 14/35 and 3/7 = 15/35

14/35 + 15/35 = 29/35

29/35 of the garden are these 2 flowers.

2/5 + 3/7

2/5 = 14/35 and 3/7 = 15/35

14/35 + 15/35 = 29/35

29/35 of the garden are these 2 flowers.
