Work: Jared is between Anita and Steph 67$\frac{3}{4}$  -  42$\frac{1}{2}$ Turn  $\frac{1}{2}$  into  $\frac{2}{4}$ Now 67$\frac{3}{4}$  -  42$\frac{2}{4}$ Do 67 - 42 first to make it easier 67 - 42 = 25 Then do  $\frac{3}{4}$  -  $\frac{2}{4}$ $\frac{3}{4}$  -  $\frac{2}{4}$  =  $\frac{1}{4}$ Then add the two back together to get 25$\frac{1}{4}$ Remember that Steph is above Jared though. Answer: Steph is 25$\frac{1}{4}$  feet above Jared.
