Nov 3, 2016

$\frac{19}{4}$

#### Explanation:

To aid understanding write as $\text{ } 4 + \frac{3}{4}$

Multiply by 1 and you do not change the overall value. However multiplying by $1 \text{ as } \frac{4}{4}$ does change the way it looks.

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\left[4 \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\times 1}\right] + \frac{3}{4} \text{ " =" } \left[4 \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\times \frac{4}{4}}\right] + \frac{3}{4}}$

$\text{ = } \frac{16}{4} + \frac{3}{4}$

$\text{ = } \frac{19}{4}$
