Step-by-Step explanation:

Step 1: Determine the common denominator:

The common denominator is equal to the lowest common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators: 8 is a multiple of 2. Therefore the common denominator is 8

Step 2: Expand to the common denominator:

Expand the first fraction with the number 4

1 + 5 = 1 × 4 + 5 = 4 + 5
2 8 2 × 4 8 8 8

Step 3: Add the numerators:

Since the two fractions have a common denominator, you can add:

4 + 5 = 4 + 5 = 9
8 8 8 8

Step 4: Check whether the result can be simplified

The result can not be simplified.
