Let the number be x.

Equation:
 \frac{1}{4} x +  \frac{3}{8} x = 15



LCD : (4)(8)

Multiply each term by (4)(8):

(4)(8) \frac{1}{4} x + (4)(8) \frac{3}{8}x = 15 (4)(8)

8x + 12x = 480

20x = 480

(20x)/20 = 480/20

x = 24   

The number is 24.

To check:

 \frac{1}{4} (24)+  \frac{3}{8} (24) = 15

6 + 9 = 15
15 = 15
