#### Formula:

lcm = LCM (b1, b2, b3, ...)
Sum of Unlike denominators = (a1*(lcm/b1) + a2*(lcm/b2) + a3*(lcm/b3) + ...) / lcm
**Where,**
a1, a2, a3 = Numerators
b1, b2, b3 = Denominators
LCM = Least Common Multiple
### Example:

Add Multiple Fractions with Different Denominators for the values a1 as 5, a2 as 7, b1 as 4 and b2 as 8.

#### Solution:

lcm = LCM (b1, b2, b3, ...)

Sum of Unlike denominators = (a1*(lcm/b1) + a2*(lcm/b2) + a3*(lcm/b3) + ...) / lcm

= 17 / 8

= 2.125
