My problem is evaluate the expression 1 11/16  (4 1/6)?
1) 27/16 + 25/6 = 81/48 + 200/48 = 119/48 = 2 23/48
2) 1 33/48 + 4 8/48 = 3 41/48
Have to do it two ways, why can't I get the same answer. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you very much

Damon
1 11/16 + 4 1/6
=  27/16 + 25/6 sure enough
= 81/48 + 200/48 agree
= 119/48
= 2 23/48 yes
============================
NO!
1 33/48 + 4 8/48
= 3 25/48
= 2 + 48/48 25/48
= 2 + 23/48
