Work Step by Step

We start by adding the whole numbers: 8+3=11. In order to add or subtract fractions, we start by making a common denominator (bottom of the fraction). Thus, we multiply 1/5 by 4/4 and 3/4 by 5/5 to obtain: $\frac{4}{20}$+($\frac{15}{20}$)=$\frac{19}{20}$. We add the 11 to get an answer of 11$\frac{19}{20}$.
