# Evaluate: /(1) 2+/(1) 3

## Expression: $$\frac { 1 } { 2 } + \frac { 1 } { 3 }$$

Least common multiple of $2$ and $3$ is $6$. Convert $\frac{1}{2}$ and $\frac{1}{3}$ to fractions with denominator $6$.

$$\frac{3}{6}+\frac{2}{6}$$

Since $\frac{3}{6}$ and $\frac{2}{6}$ have the same denominator, add them by adding their numerators.

$$\frac{3+2}{6}$$

Add $3$ and $2$ to get $5$.

$$\frac{5}{6}$$
