## Result:

### 1/4 + 2/3 = 11/12 ≅ 0.9166667

Spelled result in words is eleven twelfths.### Calculation steps

- Add: 1/4 + 2/3 = 1 · 3/4 · 3 + 2 · 4/3 · 4 = 3/12 + 8/12 = 3 + 8/12 = 11/12

For adding, subtracting, and comparing fractions, it is suitable to adjust both fractions to a common (equal, identical) denominator. The common denominator you can calculate as the least common multiple of both denominators - LCM(4, 3) = 12. In practice, it is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 3 = 12. In the next intermediate step, the fraction result cannot be further simplified by canceling.

In words - one quarter plus two thirds = eleven twelfths.
