Get the fractions on like denominators.

#### Explanation:

$41 \frac{1}{2}$ can be written as $41 + \frac{1}{2} \cdot \frac{5}{5} = 41 + \frac{5}{10}$
(only multiplying the fraction by $1$ disguised as $\frac{5}{5}$)

$3 + \frac{6}{10} + 41 + \frac{5}{10} = 3 + 41 + \frac{6}{10} + \frac{5}{10} =$
$44 + \frac{11}{10} = 44 + \frac{10}{10} + \frac{1}{10} = 45 + \frac{1}{10} = 45 \frac{1}{10}$ mi
