if you start with a mixed number, you probably want to turn it back in to a mixed number

i think your answer is not right r you could have said \[5+8=13\] and \[\frac{2}{3}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{11}{12}\]

the common denominator for \(3\) and \(4\) is \(12\) not \(4\) so there is a mistake somewhere

well my teacher makes us like turn fractions into this 17/1 x 11/4=187/4

answer should be \[13\tfrac{11}{12}\]

OpenStudy (timaashorty):

you change the decimal into a fraction

OpenStudy (anonymous):

leave the remainder as a fraction you get 46 and a remainder of 3, so \(46\tfrac{3}{4}\)
