    Hi :)

    You have to put fractions on the same denominator first.

    Next, Samara sells :

    $$\frac{3}{4}$$, so it leaves $$\frac{1}{4}.$$

    To calculate $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of them to know how many purses Samara has on the end od the day, we process like that :

    $$\frac{1}{3}* \frac{1}{4}.$$

    It leaves $$\frac{1}{12} = \frac{1}{12}.$$ So, at the end of the day, Samara has 8 purses, and it corresponds to 1/12.

    Then, 1/12 = 8, so 12/12 = 8*12 = 96.

    Samara had 96 purses at the begining of the day.

    Hopes I help you. :) See you later at your next question :D
