i'm hoping that you are young and havent reached the grade 8 level yet... thats an elementary school math operation. follow standard format: BEDMAS. meaning, the order of operations in any mathematical equation is as follows (follow this order): Brackets, then Exponents, then Division and Multiplication (no priority between the two), and then Addition and Subtraction (again, no priority between the two).

assuming you got the division signs backwards in your question (so that its really two thirds plus three eighths), the answer is 25/24, or 1.0416666666 etc.

the way i learned the order of operations was PEMDAS (or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally) meaning Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division (from left to right) Addition Subtraction (from left to right). I'm guessing those are fractions so it would be 2/3+ 3/8. so you would change the denominators so they're equal. the answer would be 25/24 or 1 1/24
