5. The second one is correct: @Dylann-

1) 3 (1/8) * 2 (1/6) = ?

2) [3(1/8) = 25/8 and 2(1/6) = 13/6 ] <-- search on google : ' How to change mixed fractions to 'top heavy' fractions'

For example with 3(1/8), you times 3 by 8 then add one then put the answer as the numerator on top ~25, keep the 8 as the denominator = 25/8
EG. 2(1/6), you times 6 by 2 then add one *one from the numerator* then put the answer as the new numerator on top ~ 13, keep the 6 as the denominator = 13/6 <---You can also check this out with a scientific calculator!

3) 25/8 - 13/6

4) [Change so denominator are both the same , in this case 24]

75/24 - 52/24 = 23/24

Where's my money?

Hope it helps kiddo!
