Mariana wants to put 6 3/4 feet of a border across the top of a wall
She has 3 6/7 feet of border
 
fraction of the project can she complete = 6 3/4   /    3 6/7
 
                                                          =27/4    /  27/7
                                                          = 27 /4 * 7/27
 
                                                          = 7/4 = 1  3/4
fraction of the project can she complete = 1 3/4 feet
