## Addition of Mixed Fractions Word Problems Worksheet

**Example 1.
**Ram and Shyam have two mango fields and the total area of the mango field is 4 \(\frac {2}{ 5} \). The big field yields 3 \(\frac {2}{ 5} \) tons of mangoes and the small field yields 2 \(\frac {1}{ 8} \) tons of mangoes. Find the total yield of mangoes?

**Solution:**

The big field yield tons of mangoes=3 \(\frac {2}{ 5} \)

The small field yields tons of mangoes=2 \(\frac {1}{ 8} \)

The total yield of mangoes=3 \(\frac {2}{ 5} \) +2 \(\frac {1}{ 8} \)

=\(\frac {17}{ 5} \)+\(\frac {17}{ 8} \)

= \(\frac {8 × 17}{ 8 ×5 } \) +\(\frac {17 × 5}{ 8 ×5 } \)

=\(\frac {136}{ 40 } \) +\(\frac {85}{ 40 } \)

=\(\frac {221}{ 40 } \)=5 \(\frac {21}{ 40 } \)

Hence, the total yield of mango fields is 5 \(\frac {21}{ 40 } \).

**Example 2.
**Sagar spends time in the tuition for 1 \(\frac {1}{ 2 } \) hours in the morning and 2 \(\frac {5}{ 8 } \) hours in the evening. How much time did he spend on the tuition?

**Solution:**

In the morning he spends time in tuition=1 \(\frac {1}{ 2 } \)

In the evening he spends time in tuition=2 \(\frac {5}{ 8} \)

The time he spends on the tuition=1 \(\frac {1}{ 2 } \) + 2 \(\frac {5}{ 8 } \)

= \(\frac {3}{ 2 } \) + \(\frac {21}{ 8 } \)

= \(\frac {12}{ 8 } \) + \(\frac {21}{ 8 } \)

= \(\frac {33}{ 8 } \) =4 \(\frac {1}{ 8 } \)

Hence, Sagar spends 4 \(\frac {1}{ 8 } \) hours on the tuition.

**Example 3.
**Sameera attended parents meeting for 1 \(\frac {2}{ 8 } \) hours, which is 1 \(\frac {1}{ 7 } \) longer than scheduled. How much time did she spend in the parent’s meeting?

**Solution:**

Sameera attended parents meeting = 1 \(\frac {2}{ 8 } \) hours

The meeting was longer by=1 \(\frac {1}{ 7 } \)

The time she spent in the meeting= 1 \(\frac {2}{ 8 } \) + 1 \(\frac {1}{ 7 } \)

=\(\frac {10}{ 8 } \) +\(\frac {8}{ 7 } \)

=\(\frac {10 × 7}{ 8 × 7 } \)+ \(\frac {8 ×8}{ 7 × 8 } \)

=\(\frac { 70}{ 56 } \) + \(\frac {64}{ 56 } \)

=\(\frac {134}{ 56 } \)

=\(\frac {67}{ 28 } \)

=2 \(\frac {11}{ 28 } \)

Hence, Sameera attended the parent’s meeting in 2 \(\frac {11}{ 28 } \) hours.

**Example 4.
**At a birthday party, Rakesh ordered 3 \(\frac {1}{4 } \) orange juice and 4 \(\frac {2}{ 7 } \) pineapple juice. But he got 4 \(\frac {3}{ 8 } \) orange juice and 3 \(\frac {2}{ 7} \) pineapple juice. Did he get more or fewer juices? By how much?

**Solution:**

Rakesh ordered = 3 \(\frac {1}{ 4 } \) +4 \(\frac {2}{ 7} \)

=\(\frac {13}{ 4 } \)+ \(\frac {30}{ 7} \)**
**=\(\frac {13 × 7}{ 4 × 7 } \) + \(\frac {30 × 4}{ 7 × 4} \)

=\(\frac {91}{28} \) +\(\frac {120}{ 28 } \)

=\(\frac {211}{ 28 } \)

=7 \(\frac {15}{ 28} \) = 7 15/28

He got= 4 \(\frac {3}{ 8 } \) + 3 \(\frac {2}{ 7 } \)

=\(\frac {35}{ 8} \) + \(\frac {23 }{ 7 } \)

=\(\frac {35 × 7}{ 8 × 7 } \) + \(\frac {23 × 8}{ 7× 8 } \)

=\(\frac {245}{ 86 } \) + \(\frac {184}{ 86 } \) = \(\frac {429}{ 86 } \)

=7 \(\frac {37}{ 56 } \)

7 \(\frac {37}{ 56 } \) – 7 \(\frac {30}{ 56 } \)

=\(\frac { 7}{ 56} \) =\(\frac {1}{8 } \)

Therefore, Rakesh got \(\frac {1}{ 8 } \) of juices more.

**Example 5.**

Sindhu goes to the temple every Friday. The distance between the temple and home is 5 \(\frac {1}{ 3 } \) miles. She goes to the temple by car in 1 \(\frac {5}{ 9 } \) hours. She came back home in 2 \(\frac {1}{ 2 } \) hours due to heavy traffic. Find the amount of time Sindhu spends on driving?

**Solution:**

Sindhu goes to the temple by car= 1 \(\frac {5}{ 9 } \)

Sindhu come back Home=2 \(\frac {1}{ 2 } \)

The time Sindhu spent in driving =1 \(\frac {5}{ 9 } \) +2 \(\frac {1}{ 2} \)

=\(\frac {14}{ 9 } \) +\(\frac {5}{ 2} \)

=\(\frac {14 × 2}{ 9 × 2 } \) +\(\frac {5 ×9}{ 9 × 2 } \)

=\(\frac {28}{ 18 } \) + \(\frac {45}{ 18 } \)

=\(\frac {73}{ 18} \) =4 \(\frac {1}{ 18 } \)

Therefore, Sindhu spends 4 \(\frac {1}{ 18 } \) time on driving.

**Example 6.**

Siri baked cakes 3 \(\frac {1}{5 } \) on Monday, 5 \(\frac {2}{ 9 } \) cakes on Tuesday, and 4 1/9 cakes on Wednesday. Find how many cakes Siri baked on all three days?

**Solution:**

Siri baked cakes on Monday= 3 \(\frac {1}{5 } \)

Siri baked cakes on Tuesday= 5 \(\frac {2}{ 9 } \)

Siri baked cakes on Wednesday= 4 \(\frac {1}{ 9 } \)

Siri baked cakes on all the three days= 3 \(\frac {1}{ 5} \) + 5 \(\frac {2}{9 } \) + 4 \(\frac {1}{ 9 } \)

=\(\frac {16}{5 } \) +\(\frac {47}{ 9 } \) +\(\frac {37}{ 9 } \)

=\(\frac {16 × 9}{ 5 × 9 } \) +\(\frac {47× 5}{ 9 × 5 } \) + \(\frac {37× 5}{ 9× 5 } \)

=\(\frac {144}{ 45 } \) +\(\frac {235}{ 45 } \) +\(\frac {185}{ 4 5 } \)

=\(\frac {564}{ 45 } \)

Divided by 3 we get \(\frac {188}{ 15 } \)

= 12 \(\frac {8}{ 15} \)

Siri baked cakes on all three days is 12 \(\frac {8}{ 15 } \) .

**Example 7.
**Naveen completed 2 \(\frac {3 }{ 10 } \) crosswords on Saturday and 3 \(\frac {4}{ 11 } \) crosswords on Sunday. In total, what fraction of these crosswords did Naveen completed?

**Solution:**

Naveen completed crosswords on saturday= 2 \(\frac {3 }{ 10 } \)

Naveen completed crosswords on saturday= 3 \(\frac {4}{ 11 } \)

No. of crosswords completed by Naveen =2 \(\frac {3 }{ 10 } \) +3 \(\frac {4}{ 11 } \)

=\(\frac {23 }{ 10 } \) + \(\frac {37 }{ 11 } \)

= \(\frac {23 × 11 }{ 10 × 11 } \) +\(\frac {37 × 10 }{ 11 × 10} \)

=\(\frac {253 }{ 110 } \) + \(\frac {370 }{ 110 } \)

=\(\frac {623 }{110 } \) =5 \(\frac {73 }{ 110 } \)

Hence, Naveen completed 5 \(\frac {73 }{ 110 } \) cross words.

**Example 8.**

Pooja bought 1 \(\frac {2 }{3 } \) kg of tomatoes, Durga bought 2 \(\frac {5 }{8 } \) dozens of tomatoes. How many dozens of tomatoes bought by Pooja and Durga?

**Solution:**

Pooja bought tomatoes= 1 \(\frac {2 }{ 3 } \)

Durga bought tomatoes= 2 \(\frac {5 }{ 8 } \)

Tomatoes bought by both of them= 1 \(\frac {2 }{ 3 } \) + 2 \(\frac {5 }{8 } \)

=\(\frac {5 }{ 3 } \) + \(\frac {21 }{ 8} \) **
**=\(\frac {5 × 8 }{3 × 8 } \) + \(\frac {21 × 3}{8 × 3 } \)

=\(\frac {40 }{24} \) + \(\frac {63 }{24 } \)

=\(\frac {103 }{24 } \)

=4 \(\frac {7 }{24 } \)

Hence, Pooja and Durga bought 4 \(\frac {7}{24 } \) kg of tomatoes.

**Example 9.**

Kavya ate 1 \(\frac {1 }{7 } \) chocolates and Lasya ate 2 \(\frac {1 }{9 } \) chocolates. In total how many chocolates were eaten by both of them?

**Solution:**

Kavya ate chocolates=1 \(\frac {1 }{7 } \)

Lasya ate chocolates=2 \(\frac {1}{9 } \)

Chocolates are eaten by both of them=1 \(\frac {1 }{7} \) +2 \(\frac {1 }{9 } \)

= \(\frac { 8 }{7 } \) +\(\frac {19}{9 } \)

=\(\frac {8× 9 }{7 × 9} \) + \(\frac {19 × 7}{9 × 7 } \)

=\(\frac {72 }{63 } \) +\(\frac {133 }{63 } \)

=\(\frac {205 }{63 } \)

=3 \(\frac {16 }{63} \)

Therefore, the Chocolates eaten by both of them are 3 \(\frac {16 }{63 } \) .

**Example 10.**

Teja read books every day. Teja read comic books 2 \(\frac {4 }{9 } \) , fiction books 1 \(\frac {2 }{3 } \) . How many books does Teja read?

**Solution:**

Teja read comic books = 2 \(\frac {4 }{9 } \)

Teja read fiction books=1 \(\frac {2}{3 } \)

No. of books Teja read= 2 \(\frac {4}{9} \) + 1 \(\frac {2 }{3 } \) 2/3

=\(\frac {22 }{9 } \) +\(\frac {5 }{3 } \)

=\(\frac {22 }{9 } \) +\(\frac {5 × 3 }{3 × 3 } \)

=\(\frac {22 }{9 } \) + \(\frac {15 }{9 } \)

=\(\frac {37 }{9 } \) =4 \(\frac {1}{9 } \)

Hence, no. of books Teja read is 4 \(\frac {1 }{9 } \) .
