What is the fastest way to find a mixed number +/- another mixed number? (ik this is not a very smart question to ask, but I'm taking quite a long time to figure this type of stuff out, ugh)

DreamingWitch:

@sailor do u think u could help aaa

Sailor:

With mixed #s, you could find a way to figure out what the improper fraction is. Example 2 5/16 The whole number when it's 1 equals to 16/16 The whole number when it's 2 equals to 32/16 You would then add 5/16 and you would get 37/16 I hope this is what you were talking about ;w;

DreamingWitch:

Sorta yeah, except it's kinda hard to convert it. Can I do: 4 1/4 + 5 1/4 like 4 + 5 (since both are whole numbers) = 9, and then do 1/4 plus 1/4?
