    Answer:

    3/6 + 1/3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    20/24 can be devided top and bottom by 4 which would equal 5/6, if you add 3/6 + 1/3 also equals 5/6.

    Answer:

    \frac{3}{6}+\frac{1}{3}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To answer this question, we have to sum each pair of cable and see which one results in 20/24.

    \frac{3}{6}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{12+6}{24}=\frac{18}{24}=\frac{3}{4}

    \frac{3}{6}+\frac{1}{3}=\frac{9+6}{18}=\frac{15}{18}=\frac{5}{6}

    \frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{3}=\frac{3+4}{12}=\frac{7}{12}

    Now, if we simply 20/24, we have:

    \frac{20}{24}=\frac{10}{12}=\frac{5}{6}

    As you can see, the answer is the second sum above, because they have the same basic fraction.

    Therefore, the answer is

    \frac{3}{6}+\frac{1}{3}
