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.
One fourth is three twelfths. So eleven twelfths minus three twelfths is eight twelfths, which is also two thirds.
17 twelfths or 1 and 5 twelfths.
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
9/12 minus 3/4 is 0.
The answer is Zero (0).
8/12 - 11/12 = -3/12 = -1/4
Nine tenths minus eight fifteenths equals eleven thirtieths.
3 quarters is 9 twelfths, so 9 twelfths minus 3 twelfths is 6 twelfths, which is also a half.
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.
Converting to twelfths gives 9 twelfths minus 8 twelfths which is 1 twelfth.
If we convert to the same denominators:Nine twelfths subtract six twelfths = Three twelfths.
It is: 13/12
Ten minus nine eights equals eight and seven eighths.
nine minus four and three elevenths is four and eight elevenths
Four and five twelfths is 53 twelfths, five and eleven twelfths is 71 twelfths so answer is "minus eighteen twelfths", ie -1½ or -1.5
Seriously its 1. (Jaleb)
10/12 - 5/12 = 5/12Five sixths is ten twelfths. So ten twelfths subtract five twelfths is five twelfths.If you mean 5/6 minus 5/12 then it is the same as 10/12 minus 5/12 = 5/12
Six plus four divided by eight times nine minus four is equal to 6.5
