# Examples on How to Add Fractions Lesson Objective
After understanding the basics, let's see a few more examples on how to add fractions. Once you understand the basics behind adding fractions, it is time to look at several more examples.

In this lesson, we will learn how to add fractions which are in the form of:
1. Whole number + proper fraction
2. Mixed + proper fractions with like denominator
3. Mixed + proper fractions with unlike denominators
The math video below will explain how... # Study Tips Tip #1
By now, you should know that we can only add fractions that have like denominators.

If the fractions have unlike denominators, it is important to manipulate the fractions (e.g. using Equivalent Fractions) so that the denominators become the same. Tip #2
When we add fractions, one of the given fraction may be a mixed fraction. Now, generally speaking, it is better to convert this fraction into an improper fraction first before adding. This is illustrated below: If you are not sure on how to do this conversion, click here for the lesson. Tip #3
We may need to add a whole number with a fraction. For example: Now, we can easily get the answer by just combining the whole number and the fraction together as shown below: The math video below will explain the reasons behind this.
