What is the value of a whole number minus a fraction like 1 minus 5 over 12?

The way to figure this out is to convert the whole number into a fraction with the same denominator as the fraction being subtracted. Let's do this one. 1 - (5/12) = (12/12) - (5/12) = At this point, you have 12 over 12 minus 5 over 12, and to work a fraction like that where you have a common denominator, you can take the numerators and subtract them and put the result over 12. It will look like this: (12 - 5) / 12 = 7/12 That 7/12 is your answer. You don't even have to reduce it.

How do you reduce 17 over 12 into a smaller fraction?

You NEVER "reduce" a fraction into a "smaller fraction". That would change its value. The whole idea that runs through everything you do in math is that you only change the way something looks, but you never change the size of the real number that it represents. 17/12 can't be reduced to any other fraction with lower terms. But if you want to, you can write it as 15/12 instead. That doesn't change anything. The two forms are still exactly the same number.
