set up the equation to look like this:

11 5

_ - _

12 6

When adding or subtracting fractions, always have common denominators.

The least common multiple of 6 and 12 in 12.

The first fraction is already in the least common multiple, but 6 is not.

So you must multiply both the denominator and the numerator of "5/6" by 2.

5/6 = 10/12

11 10 1

_ - _ = _

12 12 12
