Answer:

# 3 7/8#

Explanation:

You determine how many times 8 divides in to 31 evenly:

#31/8#

#3*8 = 24#
#4*8=32# too big.

so the first part of your mixed number is #3#.

Now to determine your second part we find the remainder:

#31 - (3*8) = 7#

the remainder is still being divided by 8 so our final answer is:

# 3 7/8#
