    I'm asking my friend and she is telling me a lot of complicated steps, and she says the answer is some how 14?

    it takes two steps, although the division will take a couple in itself

    Do I have to find a common denominator?

    you can probably compute \[37-21\tfrac{1}{4}\] in your head

    like if you have thirty seven dollars and you spend twenty one and a quarter, how much money do you have left?

    you have $37 you spend $21.25 \[37-21=16\] but \[1-\frac{1}{4}=\frac{3}{4}\] so you have only \[\$15.75\] left in terms of money with fractions you have \[15\tfrac{3}{4}\]

    now you have to compute \[15\tfrac{3}{4}\div1\tfrac{3}{4}\]
