What is the resulting fraction when we add 1/8 and 5/8? Give the answer in the simplest form.
Let's write down these fractions:
From here, we can see that we are adding fractions with like denominators.
Since the denominators are the same, we can just add the numerators together while keeping the denominators the same. This is shown below:
Now, by adding 1 with 5, we have the fraction as 6/8:
Notice that we can actually simplify this fraction, by dividing both the numerator and denominator with 2. This gives the fraction, 3/4.
Here, we can no longer able to simplify 3/4 further. Therefore, the answer is B.
