Answer:[tex]5 \frac{9}{20} [/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:If Tucson’s average rainfall is 10 1/4 inches and Yuma’s is 4 4/5 inches, then the difference will give us how much more rain, on the average,Tucson get than Yuma.

[tex]10 \frac{1}{4} – 4 \frac{4}{5} [/tex]

[tex] = \frac{41}{4} – \frac{24}{5} [/tex]

We find LCM to get

[tex] \frac{205 – 96}{20} [/tex]

[tex] \frac{109}{20} = 5\frac{9}{20} [/tex]
