## Result:

### 5 3/4 = 23/4 = 5 3/4 = 5.75

Spelled result in words is five and three quarters (or twenty-three quarters).### Calculation steps

- Conversion a mixed number 5 3/4 to a improper fraction: 5 3/4 = 5 3/4 = 5 · 4 + 3/4 = 20 + 3/4 = 23/4

To find new numerator:

a) Multiply the whole number 5 by the denominator 4. Whole number 5 equally 5 * 4/4 = 20/4

b) Add the answer from previous step 20 to the numerator 3. New numerator is 20 + 3 = 23

c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 23) over the denominator 4.

Five and three quarters is twenty-three quarters
