Answer: 1/8 + 7/12 = 17/24

Solutions:

To add the fractional values like in the given question

we used the concept of LCM

First, we need to calculate the LCM of 8 and 12

LCM(8,12) = 24

Now, 1/8 + 7/12 = (1x3 + 7x2)/24  = (3+14)/24 = 17/24

Therefore,

1/8 + 7/12 = 17/24

To calculate the LCM of 8 and 12

Factors of 8 = 1x2x2x2

Factors of 12 = 1x2x2x3

LCM(8,12) = all the common factors x non-common factors = 1x2x2x2x3 = 24  ### Other questions on the subject: Mathematics
