This is great and thanks for making maths easier. Can you post up a video of adding a fraction that has a power / squared. Example 1 1/2 + 2 2/5 (the denominator is squared).

Will this work with all combinations of numbers? and is it legit to use in exams?
Louise McKenna (30 days ago)
This is just over complicating it. It's way easier the right way
Ilham Hafizi (1 month ago)
I think we could just add up the big number and then solve the fraction, if its gonna be improper fraction, we will just add the number in front easily

I got an Exam tomorrow about Math I hope that this is all right... that 1/2 and 3/4 one is questionable because why is the denominator 8 when 4 is closer to 2 and 4
Easy lol
