    Answer: A total of 8 1/3 yards of fabric is needed for both pieces.

    Step-by-step explanation: First, you must subtract 1/6 from 4 1/4 to figure out how many yards of fabric is needed for the matching jacket. To do this, you have to find common denominators for each fraction. Since the fractions have a least common denominator of 12, change each fraction to satisfy this new denominator: 1/6 changes to 2/12 and 4 1/4 changes to 4 3/12. Now, you must subtract: 4 3/12 – 2/12 = 4 1/12. Therefore, the matching jacket requires 4 1/12 yards of fabric. Next, add the amount of fabric for the dress (4 3/12) to the amount of fabric for the matching jacket (4 1/12): 4 3/12 + 4 1/12 = 8 4/12. Simplify 8 4/12 to get a final answer of 8 1/3 yards of fabric in total.

    Answer:

    4  5/12 + 4 1/4  

    Step-by-step explanation:

    4  1/4 – 1/6 – you have to turn the mixed # into improper fraction  –  17/4,

    17/4 – 1/6 = 4 5/12

    4 5/12 + 4 1/4  8 2/3

    8 2/3 is the answer i hope this helps lol, 🙂
