You need to put the answers into improper fractions. So 2 1/2 into 5/2  And 2 3/5 into 13/5 Now your fractions need the same denominator so multiply 13/5 by 2 and multiply 5/2 by 5 You should now have 25/10 and 26/10 Now turn them back into mixed fractions. 2 5/10 2 6/10 2+2=4 5/10 + 6/10 = 11/10 OR 1 1/10 4+ 1 1/10 = 5 1/10 1/10 is your remainder
