  1. 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.
