Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the negative IN FRONT of the fraction applies NOT just to the 2 after it, but to the whole fraction \(2\frac{1}{3}+3\frac{1}{4}=\cfrac{11}{12}\qquad \begin{cases} 2\frac{1}{3}\implies \cfrac{(2\cdot 3+1)}{3}\implies \cfrac{7}{3}\\ 3\frac{1}{4}\implies \cfrac{3\cdot 4+1}{4}\implies \cfrac{13}{4} \end{cases}\)
