This is a problem that requires you to convert integers to fractions and then divide.

if we need 93 boxes and 1 tree makes 7 3/4 boxes,

7*4 = 28 + 3 = 31, 7 3/4 = 31/4 from one tree.

So,

93*4 = 372. 372/4 = 93 boxes.

now take 372 and divide by 31,

372/31 = 12.

so to harvest 93 boxes, you will need 12 trees.
