Accepted Solution

A:

Hey there!

Here is your answer:

The proper answer to this question is option "[tex] \frac{109}{8} [/tex]

Reason:

First write down the equation:

8[tex] \frac{1}{2} [/tex]+5[tex] \frac{1}{8} [/tex]

Transform the mixed numbers into improper fractions.

8 [tex] \frac{1}{2} [/tex]=[tex] \frac{17}{2} [/tex]

&

5 [tex] \frac{1}{8} [/tex]= [tex] \frac{41}{8} [/tex]

Now add:

17×4=68

2×4=8

+

41×1=41

8×1=8

68+41=109

=[tex] \frac{109}{8} [/tex]

Therefore the answer would be 109/8!
