Explanation:

One process is:

$11 \frac{3}{8} = 11 + \frac{3}{8} = \left(\frac{8}{8} \times 11\right) + \frac{3}{8} = \frac{88}{8} + \frac{3}{8} = \frac{88 + 3}{8} = \frac{91}{8}$

Another process is:

• First, multiply the integer by the denominator: $11 \times 8 = 88$

• Next, add this result to the numerator: $88 + 3 = 91$

• Now, put this result over the denominator: $\frac{91}{8}$
