To find out how many tablespoons of detergent Pam will need in total, we need to multiply the number of batches by the amount of detergent needed per batch.

1. Convert 3 1/5 to an improper fraction: 3 1/5 = (5*3 + 1)/5 = 16/5
2. Multiply the number of batches by the amount of detergent per batch:
16/5 * 2 3/4
3. Multiply the whole numbers: 16/5 * 2 = 32/5
4. Multiply the fractions: 16/5 * 3/4 = (16 * 3) / (5 * 4) = 48/20 = 12/5
5. Add the whole numbers and fractions together: 32/5 + 12/5 = 44/5

Therefore, Pam will need a total of 44/5 tablespoons of detergent.

To find the total number of tablespoons of detergent Pam will need, we can start by calculating the amount of detergent needed for one batch of paint.

One batch requires 2 3/4 tablespoons of detergent. To convert the mixed number 2 3/4 to an improper fraction, we need to multiply the whole number (2) by the denominator (4), and add the numerator (3), which gives us 11/4 tablespoons.

Now, Pam is mixing 3 1/5 batches of paint. To make the calculation easier, we can convert the mixed number 3 1/5 to an improper fraction. Multiplying the whole number (3) by the denominator (5) and adding the numerator (1), we get 16/5 batches.

To find the total amount of detergent needed, we multiply the amount needed for one batch (11/4 tablespoons) by the number of batches (16/5):

(11/4) * (16/5) = (11 * 16) / (4 * 5) = 176/20 = 8 8/20 = 8 2/5 tablespoons.

Therefore, Pam will need 8 2/5 tablespoons of detergent to mix 3 1/5 batches of paint.
