**What is a Fraction?**

A fraction is used to represent the part of the whole thing. It represents the equal parts of the whole. A fraction has two parts, namely numerator and denominator. The number on the top is called the numerator, and the number on the bottom is called the denominator.

##

**What is Addition of fractions (with same denominators)?**

The addition of like fractions teaches us to add two or more fractions with the same denominators. If the denominators are already same, then it just a matter of adding the numberators.

**Example 1:**

Add 4/7 and 2/7.

Solution:

Given: (4/7) + (2/7)

Here, the denominator values are the same, so keep the value as it is.

Now, add the numerator values

(4/7) + (2/7) = (4 + 2)/7

(4/7) + (2/7) =6 /7

Ans = 6/7.
