    7 1/8 quarts. 3 3/8 + 3 3/4 = 7 1/8. You start by adding the whole numbers together (6). Then, you have to add the fractions, but they don’t have a common denominator. You have to multiple 3/4 by 2 to get it to have a common denominator (8). This becomes 3/8 + 6/8, which is 9/8, or 1 1/8. Add the whole number (1) to the other whole numbers (6), making 7. Then add what’s left over from the other fraction (1/8). This leaves 7 1/8.

    Answer:

    7 1/8 quarts.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Basically, you need to add the 2 values.

    I’m going to convert 3 3/4 to eighths to make the addition easier. So, to convert it, I multiply the numerator and denominator by 2 to get 6/8. Now it is 3 6/8.

    So, 3 3/8 + 3 6/8 is 6 9/8, which is equal to 7 1/8.
