    change 3/8 to 24ths = 9/24

    9/24 + 16/24 = 25/24 or 1 1/24

    you change the fractions to 24ths because that is the Lowest Common Multiple of both fractions.

    The LCM (least common multiple) is 24 so let's change 3/8 to 24ths

    3 x 3 = 9

    8 x 3 24

    Now lets add 9/24 and 16/24 and we get 25/24 which is an improper fraction.

    We will divide 25 by 24 and get 1 with a remainder of 1. We put the remainder over the denominator to get our final answer of 1 1

    24
