It is: 7/12

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

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

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

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

1/3

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

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

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

1/4 - 1/3 Find common denominator: 3/12 - 4/12 Subtract: -1/12 The answer is -1/12 (negative one-twelfth) 1/3-1/4 Common denominator: 4/12-3/12 Answer: 1/12 Hope this helps:)

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

23 and 2/3

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.

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

3 over 12 and 1 over 12 are not equal.

-1/9

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