First we set up our problem. 8- 2 3/4 Next, we turn our mixed fraction, 2 3/4, into an improper fraction. 2 3/4= 11/4. Next, we turn 8 into a fraction. 32/4. The reason we chose 4 as our denominator was to make it easier to subtract it from 11/4. Next we subtract our two fractions. 32/4-11/4=21/4. Finally, we simplify 21/4. 5 1/4. Our final answer is 5 1/4. Have a nice day! :)
