    Answer:

    (34) \displaystyle 19\ \frac{1}{8}

    (35) \displaystyle 0.375=\frac{3}{8}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Fractions

    (34)

    A share of stock was worth $19.125 on Wednesday. We need to express that number as a mixed number. The approach will be:

    Separate the integer part from the decimal part:

    19+0.125

    Express the decimal part as a fraction

    \displaystyle 0.125=\frac{125}{1000}

    Simplify the fraction by 125

    \displaystyle 0.125=\frac{1}{8}

    Now we combine both parts to produce the mixed number

    \displaystyle 19.125=19\ \frac{1}{8}

    (35)

    The net change from Tuesday to Wednesday is

    19.125-18.75=0.375

    We proceed as did before to express this number as a fraction

    \displaystyle 0.375=\frac{375}{1000}

    And as before, we simplify by 125 to get

    \boxed{\displaystyle 0.375=\frac{3}{8}}
