Six twelfths is a fraction which is written as 6/12. If you wish to represent this as thirds then you need to change the denominator (the number you are dividing by) from 12 to 3. You do this by dividing 12 by 4. However as you have made the denominator 4 times smaller, you also have to make the numerator (the number you are dividing) 4 times smaller too in order to maintain the same proportion. 6 divided by 4 is one and a half. So, 6/12 = 1 1/2 / 3. This is known as a complex fraction because (in this case) the numerator contains a fraction.

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.

We convert the fractions to twelfths: 1 + 8 twelfths + 9 twelfths. 1 + 17 twelfths 2 and 5 twelfths.

If we convert to the same denominators:Nine twelfths subtract six twelfths = Three twelfths.

no, two thirds = eight twelfths, so nine twelfths is bigger.

6 and 2/3 = 20/3 = 80/12

Yes, it is. Three and two thirds is three and eight twelfths.

No, four twelfths is equal to one third, so two thirds is more.

One fourth is three twelfths. So eleven twelfths minus three twelfths is eight twelfths, which is also two thirds.
