In a vegetable garden 1/6 of the area is covered with lettuce and 5/12 with tomato plants what fraction of the area is plant with these plant?

 fraction of area covered with lettuce  = 1/6

fraction of area covered with  tomato = 5/12

fraction of area covered with these plants = 1/6 + 5/12 

L.C.M. of 6 and 12 = 2*2*3 = 12

1/6 x 2/2 =2/12

2/12 + 5/12 = 7/12
