well i cant figure out this answer and im basically simplifying these fractions

**2 - -3**

**3 5**

**This is equal to:**

2 + 3

3 5

3 5

1.

**Find the Lowest common Denominator (LCD) of 3 and 5** i.e find the smallest number that can be divided by both 3 and 5.

LCD of 3, and 5 is

**15**.2.

**Rewrite the equivalent fractions with the new denominator of 15** Remember whatever is done to the denominator of each fraction

must be done to its numerator also.

2(5) + 3(3) = 10 + 9

3(5) 5(3) 15 15

3.

**Add the fractions** Since their denominators are the same, simply add the numerators.

**19 = 1 4/15**

**15**

Remember that your final answer must be in its simplest form.
