It is: 3 and 3/5

Divide out the fraction ie 5/8 = 0.625 (decimal form), then multiply with your existing mixed number (assuming its a decimal) > If its a fraction and a mixed fraction however, change the mixed fraction to vulgar fraction first then multiply tops and bottoms, to reveal final fraction ie 5/8 * 1 3/4 becomes 5/8 * 7/4 multiply tops and bottoms = 35/32 change back to mixed fraction = 1 3/32
