Now why do you suppose we say "over" in that description ? Could it be because

the fraction has the '5' written 'over' the '12', with a horizontal bar between them ?

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.
