Answer:1 3/20

Explanation:Find the lowest common denominator of both fractions, which is 20.

2/5 = x/20. Find the value of x and that is 8.

3/4 = y/20. Find the value of y and that is 15

Add 8/20 and 15/20 and that gives you 23/20. This is an improper fraction so divide 23 by 20, which is 1 3/20
