$\frac{3}{4} \times 1 \frac{1}{8} = \frac{27}{32}$

#### Explanation:

First convert 1 1/8 to an improper fraction.

Multiply the denominator by the whole number 1, add the numerator 1, and place the result in the numerator, keeping the denominator the same.

$\frac{\left(8 \times 1 + 1\right)}{8} = \frac{9}{8}$

Rewrite the expression.

$\frac{3}{4} \times \frac{9}{8}$

Multiply the numerators and denominators.

$\frac{3 \times 9}{4 \times 8} = \frac{27}{32}$
