"Assuming that x(sub1) is fredie's weight last year and y is the increase in this year we can write the equation as [x(s1) (y)] = x(s2)

=60 (1/8) = xs2

To Multiply whole numbers with fractions, First let's assume that 60 has a denominator of 1

=60/1 (1/8) = xs2

Proceed

=60/8 = xs2

Lastly, Simplify by getting the 2 numbers LCD.

After Getting the LCD divide the two numbers by Their LCD, this will make it easier

Their LCD is 4.

60 ➗ 4 = 15

8 ➗ 4 = 2

=15/4

The weight ferdie gained is 15/4 or 3.75"
