I would change the 3 1/8 into an improper fraction. To do this, multiply 8•3 and add 1 and put that number over the denominator. So, 25/8. Next, change 5 into a fraction with 8 in the denominator. 40/8 works. 40/8 - 25/8 = 15/8

I don't know if you have to change the fraction into a mixed number or decimal...do your teachers have a preference?
