Answer:

#35/4#

Explanation:

When finding an improper fraction from a mixed number, you follow three easy steps:

-Multiply the whole number by the denominator (bottom number) in the fraction

-Add that number to the numerator (top number) of the fraction

-Set that number over the original denominator

Now knowing this, we apply it to the question at hand:

#8 6/8#

#=((8*8) + 6)/8#

#=((64) + 6)/8#

#=70/8#

Now all we do is simplify:

#=35/4#
