Answer:1 3/4Step-by-step explanation:Answer:Sum of two numbers=5

1st Number=3 and 3/4 = 15/4

Other Number= 5 – 15/4

:-Step by Step(1) As we know 5=5/1

(2) To subtract 15/4 from 5 we need to first find the HCF of denominators 1 and 4.

HCF= 4

We can write 5/1=20/4

Other Number= 20/4 – 15/4 = 5/4

Hence other number is 5/4

Confirmation:-5/4+3 and 3/4

5/4+15/4=20/4

20/4=5

HOPE THIS HELPFUL.
