    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To make the new dance outfit, she needs 2 1/2 yards of fabric for the shawl. Converting 2 1/2 yards to improper fraction, it becomes 5/2 yards.

    She also needs 1 3/4 yards of fabric for the dress. Converting 1 3/4 yards to improper fraction, it becomes 7/4 yards.

    The total number of yards of fabric that she needs is

    5/2 + 7/4 = 17/4 yards

    If she has 3 yards of fabric, then the number of extra yards of fabric that Ciara needs is

    17/4 – 3 = 5/4 = 1 1/4 yards
