    Well that's not an equation is it?

    If you want to add these fractions to make a single fraction, find a common denominator. What number might that be?

    Ok but my point stands. What's the lowest common multiple of 3 and 4? Try multiplying each term by this number.

    You need to surround your LaTex with tags [latex ] and [/latex ] (no spaces).

    The method is still the same. Find the common denominator of the two fractions you are adding. You want a number that is divisible by both 4 and 3. Then make both fractions have that same common denominator
