The answer is 6.

Here's how to determine that:

1. Start with the original fractions of 3 3/4 + 2 7/28

2. Obtain a common denominator so they can be added together. To do that, multiply the numerator of the fraction with the smallest denominator by the same value it takes to increase the denominator to the same value as the other denominator. In english: in the fraction 3/4, "3" is the numerator and "4" is the denominator. We have to get the "4" to match the larger denominator ("28") of the 7/28 fraction. To do that, look at both denominators ("4" and "28") and determine if the smaller denominator ("4") can be multipled to equal the larger denominator ("28"). Since we know that multiplying 4 by 7 equals 28, we know that we can make the denominators equal by multiplying the 3/4 fraction by 7. So, doing so, we then have a fraction that is 21/28. Both numbers in the fraction are multipled by the same amount.

3. So, now you have 3 and 21/28 + 2 and 7/28.

4. Add the fractions (21/28 and 7/28) together, which gives you 28/28. Since the result is a whole number (a fraction with matching numerator and denominator), we no longer need to write it as a separate fraction. Therefore, the new formula looks like this: 3+2+1 (the 1 was originally 28/28). Added together, the result is 6.

seven twenty-fourths

Six eighths, or three fourths.

2 7/8 + 1 3/4 = 4 5/8 or four and five eighths.

Three fourths, two fourths, three fourths.

Expressed as a mixed number in its simplest form, 4 7/8 - 1 11/12 = 2 23/24 or two and twenty-three twenty-fourths. Expressed as a decimal, this is equal to 2.9583 recurring (that is, 2.9583333...)
