== == 7/12 - 11/12 = -4/12 or -1/3.

First, you have to make the denominators the same. 7 4 --- - --- 12 12 Then, you subtract. 7 4 3 1 --- - --- = --- = --- 12 12 12 4

change 1/4 to twelfths = 3/12. Now you can subtract: 7/12 - 3/12 = 4/12, which simplifies to 1/3.

It is: 7/12

to subtract (or add) fractions you need tohave a common denominator 7/12 - 1/3 = 7/12 - 4/12 = 3/12 = 1/4

1. Subtract 25 2. Then subtract 6 3. Then subtract 12 4. Then subtract 2 5. Then subtract 10 6. Then subtract 15 7. Then subtract 7 8. Then add 3 X 1/2 9. Then add 8

19/21 - 4/12 (4/12 = 1/3) = 12/21Convert the 1/3 into 7/21 and subtract.

5 7/12 - 3 5/6 = 4 19/12 - 3 10/12 = 1 9/12 = 1 3/4

It is: 2 and 1/8 subtract 1 and 7/8 = 1/4

1 whole and 7 over 12

3/4 minus 1/6 is 7/12

7/12 - 1/3 = 7/12 - 4/12 = 7-4 = 3/12 = 1/4

4/7 minus 1/6 = 17/42

You are mistaken here with the words you use. You don't say "subtracted by". So I will show you seven twelfths subtract one fourth. 7/12 - 1/4 multiply 1/4 by 3 7/12 - 3/12 = 4/12 or = 1/3 divide by 3

They are called unlike fractions. To add or subtract them, you have to change them to forms that have the same denominator.Example: Add 1/3 and 3/41/3 x 4/4 = 4/12 equivalent fraction1/4 x 3/3 = 3/12 equivalent fraction4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12 and that is your answer1/3 + 1/4 = 7/12

10/12 - 1/4 needs to have a common denominator. It appears 12 would be our common denominator.10/12 - (1/4 x 3/3) = 10/12 - 3/12 = 7/12.

Give them a common denomiator.... For example - suppose you had the sum 1/3+1/4... Multiply both fractions to a common denominator - 1/3 = 4/12 and 1/4 = 3/12. Now - simply add the numerators together - 4 + 3 = 7. So - your answer would be 7/12

7/12 2 and one third = 7 thirds = 7/3 = 28/12 1 and 3 quarters = 7 quarters = 7/4 = 21/12 Taking one from the other gives 7/12

It is: 3/5-1/4 is the same as 12/20-5/20 = 7/20

-3/4 + -7/12 = (-3×3)/(4×3) + -7/12 = -9/12 + -7/12 = (-9 + -7)/12 = -16/12 = (-4×4)/(3×4) = -4/3 = -1 1/3.

-7

1/3 + 1/4? 1/3 can be changed to 4/12.. 1/4 can be changed to 3/12.. 3/12 + 4/12 = 7/12 you can't simplify 7/12, so your final answer is 7/12.

You get 50.

4 + 4 - 4/4. The 4/4 simplifies to 1, so you have 4+4 = 8, then subtract 1 is 7.
