Jane is making a suit which requires 2 5/8 yards for the jacket and 1 3/4 yards for the skirt. What is the
total amount of material she needs?
A. 3 1/2 yards
B. 4 3/8 yards
C. 3 2/3 yards
D. 4 yards

Put the fraction in original form, so the 2 5/8 will b read as 21/8 and the 1 3/4 is 7/4. [ The next step u have to do is just add the two using any method u know for adding fraction, but for now, i will use cross multiplication
21/8+7/4
= {(21x4)+(7x8)} / 8x4
= 84+56/32
= 140/32
= 4.375 or 4 3/8 ]
