Two quarters minus two thirds is negative one sixth. Two quarters is six twelfths, and two thirds is eight twelfths. Six twelfths minus eight twelfths is minus two twelfths or minus one sixth.
17 twelfths or 1 and 5 twelfths.
One fourth is three twelfths. So eleven twelfths minus three twelfths is eight twelfths, which is also two thirds.
no, two thirds = eight twelfths, so nine twelfths is bigger.
You change five sixths into ten twelfths and three quarters into nine twelfths. Then you subtract the nine twelfths from the ten twelfths, which equals one twelfth.
nine twelfths eight twelfths ........ down to .........one twelfth
The answer is Zero (0).
9/12 minus 3/4 is 0.
8/12 - 11/12 = -3/12 = -1/4
7 twelfths. Solution: 1. 9 twelfths - 2 twelfths = 7 twelfths 2. 9/12 - 2/12 = 7/12 ============ 7/12. 9 of something minus 2 of the same thing equals 7 of that thing. It makes no difference whether the thing, for example, is apples or pounds/dollars or "twelfths" etc.
3 quarters is 9 twelfths, so 9 twelfths minus 3 twelfths is 6 twelfths, which is also a half.
