    Answer : The solution must be more than 1.

    Step-by-step explanation :

    Let us assume the two fractions that are both greater than 1/2.

    Example 1:

    The first fraction is, \frac{3}{2}

    The second fraction is, \frac{5}{2}

    Now adding two fractions, we get:

    \frac{3}{2}+\frac{5}{2}

    =\frac{8}{2}

    =4

    Example 2:

    The first fraction is, \frac{5}{2}

    The second fraction is, \frac{7}{2}

    Now adding two fractions, we get:

    \frac{5}{2}+\frac{7}{2}

    =\frac{12}{2}

    =6

    Example 3:

    The first fraction is, \frac{2}{2}

    The second fraction is, \frac{3}{2}

    Now adding two fractions, we get:

    \frac{2}{2}+\frac{3}{2}

    =\frac{5}{2}

    =2.5

    From this we conclude that if we are adding two fractions that are both greater than 1/2 then the sum of the two fractions will always be greater than 1.

    Hence, the solution must be more than 1.
