form them into proper fractions:
288 and 3/4 is equal to what?
4 and 1/8 is equal to what?
after you have this, it becomes pretty easy.
just multiply 1155/4 * 33/8

its 288*4+3 / 4 and 4 * 8 + 1 /8..
1155/4 and 33/ 8.
now divide these .

yes, if you have a fraction like
1/2 divided by 1/2, that is actually
1/2 * 2/1
or 1
same in this case. if you divide a fraction, multiply by the opposite
