# Naina was given \(1{\dfrac{1}{2}}\) piece of cake and Najma was given \(1{\dfrac{1}{3}}\) piece of cake. Find the total amount of cake was given to both of them.

**Solution:**

We will use the concepts of fractions to solve this.

In the given problem we need to find the total amount of cake given to both of them.

Let us proceed to find the solution

Part of the cake Naina got is given as \(1{\dfrac{1}{2}}\) = 3/2

Part of the cake Najma got is given as \(1{\dfrac{1}{3}}\) = 4/3

To find the total amount we need to add both the part obtained above.

Hence,total amount of cake given to both of them is 3/2 + 4/3

Here LCM of 2 and 3 is 6

= [(3 × 3) + (4 × 2)] / 6

= (9 + 8) / 6

= 17 / 6

Therefore, the total amount of cake given to both of them is 17/6.
