#### Explanation:

$25 \frac{3}{8}$ + $38 \frac{3}{5}$ = ?

First, let's convert the fractions into decimals. Ignore the whole numbers for now.

$\frac{3}{8}$ is $3$ divided by $8$. Divide accordingly. You get $0.375$.

$\frac{3}{5}$ is $3$ divided by $5$. Divide accordingly. You get $0.6$.

Now, include these converted fractions with their whole numbers:

$25 \frac{3}{8}$ + $38 \frac{3}{5}$ = ?
$25.375 + 38.600$ = ?

? = 63.975, or $63 \frac{39}{40}$
