# Math Help - [SOLVED] Addition of Algeraic Fractions

1. ## [SOLVED] Addition of Algeraic Fractions

Q. Simplify: $\frac {m}{m^2 + mn} + \frac {n}{n^2 + mn}$

this is the furthest i've gotten, im not sure if its even right so far

$\frac {2mn}{m + n( m + n)}$

Thanks

2. $\frac{m}{m^2+mn}+\frac{n}{n^2+mn}$
= $\frac{1}{m+n}+\frac{1}{n+m}$
= $\frac{2}{m+n}$

3. sure I too got to same result:

$2/(m+n)$

so you can cancel the m's in the first fraction to get
1/m+n

and cancel the n's in the second fraction to get

1/n+m

now you can add them to get
(1/m+n) + (1/n+m)
=
2/m+n
ass the denominators are the samm
