# Adding Mixed Numbers Test #2

Example 1: Find each sum $$3 \frac{1}{5} + \hspace{.25em}2 \frac{2}{5}$$ • add the fractions first $$\frac{1}{5} + \frac{2}{5} = \frac{3}{5}$$ • add the whole numbers: 3 + 2 = 5 $$3 \frac{1}{5} + \hspace{.25em}2 \frac{2}{5} = 5 \frac{3}{5}$$ Multiplying Mixed Numbers:
Example 1: Find each product $$1 \frac{2}{7} \cdot \hspace{.25em}4 \frac{4}{7}$$ • Convert each to an improper fraction $$1 \frac{2}{7} = \frac{9}{7}$$ $$4 \frac{4}{7} = \frac{32}{7}$$ • Multiply the improper fractions $$\frac{9}{7} \cdot \frac{32}{7} = \frac{288}{49} = 5 \frac{43}{49}$$
