    Answer:

      4 1/8 inches

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You apparently want to find the sum (in inches) …

      5.5 + (1 3/4) – (3 1/8)

    This can be done a number of ways. One is to use an appropriate calculator.

    __

    Another way to do this is to add the integer parts and fraction parts separately:

      = (5 +1 -3) +(1/2 +3/4 -1/8)

      = 3 + (4/8 +6/8 -1/8) = 3 + (4+6-1)/8 = 3 9/8

      = 4 1/8

    __

    Another way is to convert all the numbers to decimal, then add.

      = 5.500 +1.750 -3.125

      = 7.250 -3.125

      = 4.125 = 4 1/8

    __

    There were 4 1/8 inches of snow remaining Tuesday evening.

    Answer:

    4 1/8 inches

    Step-by-step explanation:

    7 1/4 – 3 1/8

    (7-3) + (1/4 -1/8)

    4 + (1/4 – 1/8)

    4 + 1/8

    4 1/8 inches
