What is a fraction?

Fractions represent the parts of a whole or collection of objects.

A fraction has two parts. The number on the top of the line is called the numerator and the number on the top of the line is called the denominator.

Now it is given that,

Pounds of glass recycled = 7 2/3

⇒ Pounds of glass recycled = 23/3

Pounds of paper recycled = 9 3/4

⇒ Pounds of paper recycled = 39/4

Thus, total pounds of glass and paper recycled = Pounds of glass recycled + Pounds of paper recycled

⇒ total pounds of glass and paper recycled = 23/3 + 39/4

⇒ total pounds of glass and paper recycled = 209/12

⇒ total pounds of glass and paper recycled = 17 5/12 pounds

Thus, the students recycle 17 5/12 pounds of glass and paper all together.
