    a) He lost  (2 + 3/8) pounds in the first month,
    b) he needs to lose another (7 + 3/4) pounds.

    How much in pounds did he lose that month?

    First, we know that the weight of Brady White is (195 + 1/2) pounds, and at the end of the month, his weight is (193 + 1/8) pounds.
    To find how many pounds did he lose, we need t take the difference between these two values.
    (195 + 1/2) – (193 + 1/8)
    = (195 – 193) + (1/2 – 1/8)
    = 2 + 3/8
    Then, we conclude that in the first month he lost (2 + 3/8) pounds
    If is goal is (185 + 3/4) pounds, then the amount that he needs to lose is:
    (193 + 1/8) – (185 + 3/4)
    (193 – 185) + (1/8 – 3/4)
    8 – 5/4 = 7 + 3/4
    So to reach his goal, he needs to lose another (7 + 3/4) pounds.
