Best Answer

You can work out three quarters of something by dividing by the numerator (bottom number) which would be 4 by the number you are finding three quarters of. Then you would times the answer of that by the denominator (Top number) and you will have the answer.

For example:

3/4 of 60

60 divided by 4 = 15

15 times 3 = 45

So, 3/4 of 60 = 45

Or you could find a quarter of the number and take the quarter away from the whole number.
