the answer would be 1 ?

You'd still have the other 3. Plus 1 out of 7 of the other one.

So 3 1/7

(3 and one out of 7)

Ok can you show all together so I can understand Please

1) Get 11 straws. (Or something that's just as easy to cut)

2) Our problem says 11 - 7 - 6/7. Since we have a fraction (6/7) let's cut one straw into 7 pieces.

3) Now, the first part says 11-7. Take away 7 full straws. That leaves you with 3, plus the 7 pieces of a straw.

4) Take away 6/7 of the pieces. So if you take those away, what are you left with?

3 1/7
