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.

You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the same. In this case, we can use sixths.

Fifteen sixths minus ten sixths equals five sixths.
