11/12 subtract 1/3=

It is: 7/12

(6/12) - (1/3) = (6/12) - (4/12) = 2/12 = 1/6

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

1 whole and 7 over 12

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

The problem is 1/3 - 1/12. To work out the problem, the denominators must be the same. 1/3 needs to be changed to 4/12 in order to subtract 1/12. So, 4/12 - 1/12 = 3/12 which is the same as 1/4.

If you take 12 and subtract 1/4, the answer is 11 3/4. A 1/4 is equal to .25.

3/4 minus 1/6 is 7/12

13/20 - 3/5 = 13/20 - 12/20 = 1/20

To subtract fractions, the first step is to make sure both fractions have the same denominator. For 5/12 and 1/4, this can be achieved by multiplying top and bottom of the latter fraction by 3, giving us 3/12. Now the question says 5/12 - 3/12 and all you have to do is subtract the numerators. That gives us the answer 2/12 which can then be simplified to 1/6.

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

You can do it, it's just unlikely that you'll get the right answer. Try it out. Subtract 1/4 from 1/3. The answer is 1/12 which is easier to find if you convert 1/4 to 3/12 and 1/3 to 4/12

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

1/3

6/9 - 1/3 = 2/3 - 1/3 = 1/3

Five Over Twelve here is a very basic of how to add and subtract decimals; for adding and subtracting decimals you must get the two fractions to have the same denominator, the number on the bottom. you can do this by multiplying the numbers by another fraction that equals 1, such as 2/2 or 5/5. in this case the lowest common denominator,(or LCD) is 12. to get 3/4 to have a denominator of 12 you must multiply it by 3/3. this does not change the value because it is equal to one. 3/4*3/3=9/12. you must do the same for 1/3. 1/3*4/4=4/12. now you can subtract. 9/12-4/12=5/12. this cannot be simplified therefore 4/12 is your answer.

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

11 over 12 + 1 over 3= 11 over 12 + 4 over 12 = 15 over 12 or 1 and 3 over 12 or 1 and 1 over 4

Ignore the numerators and find the LCM of the denominators. Convert the fractions. Once the denominators are the same, subtract the numerators like any normal subtraction problem. 1/3 - 1/4 = 4/12 - 3/12 4/12 - 3/12 = 1/12 1/3 - 1/4 = 1/12
