This one is not too hard to solve. Here are the steps:
1) Find out how many spaces between the lines there are TOTAL (between 2 and 3) (that will be your denominator)

2) Find out how many spaces between the lines there are FROM 2-P (that will be your numerator)

3) Now, you have your fraction!

4) Add your fraction (in decimal form) to 2

 

There!

6/4 

 

As i counted from the spaces between 2 and 3 also from 2-P

Hmmm, try counting again.

 

Check your answer here: the number of spaces between 2-P is 5, and the number of spaces between 2-3 is 8. So, the fraction is 5/8. Add that to 2, and you have 2 5/8 (2 and 5/8, not 25/8). What is that as a decimal?

Thank you for helping me by explaining to tell me what i had to do to go figure out the answer instead of just giving it because some people on here in the past thought i used people to get me answers when i can't get certain things you know and i be asking for a little assistance.
