determine the lowest common denominator. In this case, its 66.Now, for 1/6, what number needs to be multiplied with 6 to get you to 66?......
1/6 + 9/11

first you would have to find a common denominator (in this case, that would be 66.)

1/6 = 11/66
9/11 = 54/66

11/66 + 54/66 = 65/66

First, determine the lowest common denominator. In this case, it's 66.
1/6 + 9/11

Now, for 1/6, what number needs to be multiplied with 6 to get you to 66? 11. So you multiply the denominator with 11 and whatever you do with the denominator, the same must be done to the numerator. Thus, you must multiply 1 with 11 as well:
1 x 11 / 6 x 11 = 11 / 66

For 9/11, you need to multiply 11 by 6 to get 66. Multiply the top and bottom by 6:
9 x 6 / 11 x 6 = 54 / 66

11/66 + 54/66

Whenever, the denominators (bottom numbers) are the same, you can add/subtract the numbers. In this case, you need to add them:
65/66
