Answer:

#16 1/12#

Explanation:

The whole number part #->1+14=15#

The fraction part:

#color(green)([3/4color(red)(xx1)]+[1/3color(red)(xx1)]#

#color(green)([3/4color(red)(xx3/3)]+[1/3color(red)(xx4/4)]#

#" "9/12" "+" "4/12" " =" " 13/12" " =" " 1 + 1/12#

Putting it all together we have:

#15+1+1/12" "=16 1/12#
