Answer:

#15/4 = 3 3/4#

Explanation:

General Procedure :

  1. Divide the numerator by the denominator.
    #15 divide 4 = 3#, with 3 as remainder

  2. The quotient is the whole number part of the mixed fraction. The remainder is the numerator of the fractional part. The denominator stays.

So, here 3 is the quotient, 3 is the remainder after division and 4 is the denominator.

#implies 15/4 = 3 3/4#
