I am doing a theory page for piano and need help with a problem. I need to draw one note that is equal to the sum of a quarter note and an eighth note. Anybody that could help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!!

I'll give you a couple of hints (after all, just giving you the answer wouldn't really be helping you to learn).

1. The answer is on this board in quite a few other threads (though it may not be very easy to find since thread subject names are sometimes quite nebulous - perhaps doing a search for the word "dotted" would narrow the search).

2. If you are familiar at all with any kind of sheet music, chances are you've seen this notation..... oh, about a million times. It's incredibly common.

That should get you on the right track. If you still have trouble finding what you need, let us know and we'll point you further.
