Yes it can be greater and Equal to 1. Look at it this way, If you have 5/6 + 4/6 that is equal to 9/6 or    1   3/6. Another good way to look at it is if you have 1/2 and 1/2 wich you could easily make sixths. So 3/6 and 3/6 added is equal to exactly one. There you go

Step-by-step explanation:

Their sum can be equal to one and also be greater than one.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since both fraction written by Leah is less than one and have same denominator, the following fractions are some of the possible fraction written by Leah;

1/3 and 2/3, 3/4 and 2/4

Note that both assumed fractions are less than 1 with same denominators.

Adding up this fractions we have;

1/3+2/3 = 3/3 = 1

Similarly,

3/4+2/4 = 5/4 = 1.25

This shows that their sum can be equal to one and can also be greater than one.

This shows that no matter the two different fractions written by Leah, the sum of both fractions can both be less than 1 and also be greater than 1 according to the example used above.
