To subtract fractions, the first step is to make sure both fractions have the same denominator. For 5/12 and 1/4, this can be achieved by multiplying top and bottom of the latter fraction by 3, giving us 3/12. Now the question says 5/12 - 3/12 and all you have to do is subtract the numerators. That gives us the answer 2/12 which can then be simplified to 1/6.
