#### Answer

3$\frac{11}{12}$

#### Work Step by Step

We first subtract the whole numbers: $8-4=4$. In order to add or subtract fractions, we start by making a common denominator (bottom of the fraction). Thus, we multiply 3/4 by 3/3 and 5/6 by 2/2 to obtain: $\frac{9}{12}-$($\frac{10}{12}$)=-$\frac{1}{12}$. We add the 4 to get an answer of 3$\frac{11}{12}$.
