  1. Find the least common donimenator in 1/3,1/4 n 7/8, I can up with 24 for all bottom numbers.24 it should look like this....1 8/24+1 6/24+ 21/24. U add all the whole no#'s, then all the numerators. Your answer should be 2 35/24, now multipy the whole no# by the denomantor 2×24=48, then divide 48÷35, it gives you a decimal 1.371428571 n the answer is,1.371. Hope this helped

  2. Hi Teshea. Thanks for your help. But one question though......you said "now multiply the whole no# by the denominator 2x24=48, then divide 48/35, it gives you a decimal 1.371428571n the answer is 1.371.But I thought that when you multiply the whole number by the demoninator then you add the top number 35 and get 83. then you get 83/24 and divide and get 3.45833333333 and finally I get 3.458. ???? don't get it.
