To express (7 \frac{3}{5} + (-4.8)) as a simplified fraction:

- Convert (7 \frac{3}{5}) to an improper fraction: (7 \frac{3}{5} = \frac{7 \times 5 + 3}{5} = \frac{38}{5}).
- Add the improper fraction to ( -4.8): ( \frac{38}{5} + (-4.8) ).
- To add fractions with unlike denominators, find a common denominator. The least common multiple (LCM) of 5 and 10 (since 4.8 can be written as ( \frac{48}{10} )) is 10.
- Rewrite ( \frac{38}{5} ) with a denominator of 10 by multiplying the numerator and denominator by 2: ( \frac{38 \times 2}{5 \times 2} = \frac{76}{10} ).
- Now, the expression becomes ( \frac{76}{10} - \frac{48}{10} ).
- Subtract the fractions: ( \frac{76}{10} - \frac{48}{10} = \frac{76 - 48}{10} = \frac{28}{10} ).
- Simplify the fraction: ( \frac{28}{10} = \frac{14}{5} ).

So, (7 \frac{3}{5} + (-4.8)) expressed as a simplified fraction is ( \frac{14}{5} ).
