1 2/3 +2 1/4
5/3+9/4 (to convert them into like fractions we should do LCM of the denominators the lcm of it is 12)
20/12+27/12
47/12
3 11/12 cups of sugar is needed

you are adding 1 2/3 + 2 1/4
first these are mixed fractions lets change them to regular fractions for 1 2/3 take the whole number and multiply by the denominator 3 and add the numerator, then that number over denominator 3 so
(1 x 3) +2 = 5/3 do that with 2 1/4
what did you get?
