it's basically 78 divides 3 3/4

Do I need to change 3 3/4 into a mixed fraction first?

Multiply the whole number by the denominator. Add the result to the numerator. The denominator remains the same

So 3 3/4, you multiply the 3 whole number to the bottom 4, which is 12, you add it to the top (3) you get 15 and you keep the denominator. So 15/4

Set it up 78 (in fraction) divides for 15/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't you just add a 1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
To 78? Yeah it's pretty much 78/1
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like 78/1?
