You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the same. In this case, we can use sixths.

Before you can add fractions, you first need to convert the fractions so they have common denominators. Two thirds is equal to four sixths, so now we can add the fractions that have common denominators. Four sixths and five sixths equals eleven sixths, or one and five sixths left over. Now, add your whole numbers...one, four and the one gained when we converted the fraction equals six and five sixths.
