    A. 8 5/8.

    to add fractions that don't have the same denominator, you usually have to multiply one of them to make them the same so in this case, i multiplied 1/4x2 so i get 2/8. (2/8 and 1/4 are equal) now you can easily add the two fractions: 6 2/8 (6 1/4) + 2 3/8 = 8 5/8.

    you have to make the denominator the same which would be 8. it would be 6 2/8 + 2 3/8= 8 5/8; which is A. :)
