Answer:

#11/12#

Explanation:

Find the lowest common denominator of 4 and 3. In this case it is 12.
Divide the denominator of the first fraction into 12 and multiply the numerator of the first fraction by the result. You should then have:

#( 3 + ?)/12#

Do the same with the second fraction. You should then have:

#( 3 + 8)/12# add the numbers in the numerator to get #11/12#

In decimal form this is 0.9167 to 4.d.p

Hope this helps.
