We know that 4,6, and 8 are all factors of 24 . Therefore, we can use 24 as a common
denominator: $\frac{24}{4}=6, \quad \frac{24}{6}=4, \quad \frac{24}{8}=3$
We will now convert each of the fractions into fractions with this common denominator:
$\frac{3}{4}=\frac{18}{24} \quad, \quad \frac{1}{6}=\frac{4}{24} \quad, \quad \frac{5}{8}=\frac{15}{24}$
Thus, $\frac{3}{4}+\frac{1}{6}+\frac{5}{8}=\frac{18}{24}+\frac{4}{24}+\frac{15}{24}=\frac{18+4+15}{24}=\frac{37}{24}$
