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.
One half is bigger.
Well, one half equals six twelfths. You figure it out from there.
3/12 or 1/4
One fourth is three twelfths. So eleven twelfths minus three twelfths is eight twelfths, which is also two thirds.
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.
five twelfths (5/12).
!less by one twelfth
Expressed as a mixed number in its simplest form, 8 5/12 - 5 3/12 = 3 1/6 or three and one sixth.
Yes . 5/12=0.4166. 6/12 is one half.
Expressed as a mixed number in its simplest form, 3/2 + 5/12 + 6/12 = 2 5/12 or two and five twelfths.
There are six twelfths in one half.Seven twelfths is more than six twelfths.Therefore seven twelfths is larger than one half.
one minus eleven twelfths = 1 - 11/12 = 12/12 - 11/12 = 1/12
five twelfths 1/6 = 2/12 7/12 - 2/12 = 5/12
There are six twelfths in one half. That leaves room for one 5/12 with one twelfth left over.
75 and a half
Five-twelfths or 5/12
5/12 - 1/4 = 5/12 - 3/12 = 2/12 = 1/6
