Best Answer

The word "of" in mathematics means multiplied by, and thus we can rewrite the question as 3/4 x 12. To multiply a whole number by a fraction, you need to multiply by the numerator, then divide by the denominator. In this case, 12x3 = 36, /4 = 9. Therefore 3/4 of 12 is 9.

-3/4 + -7/12 = (-3×3)/(4×3) + -7/12 = -9/12 + -7/12 = (-9 + -7)/12 = -16/12 = (-4×4)/(3×4) = -4/3 = -1 1/3.

4 over 12 = 1 / 3 or 1 over 3

12/4 = 12 ÷ 4 = 3

1/3 + 1/4 = 4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12

Yes. 3/4 is equivalent to 12/16 3/4 * 4/4 = 12/16 thus 3/4 = 12/16

Yes. 3/4 is equivalent to 12/16 3/4 * 4/4 = 12/16 thus 3/4 = 12/16

11 over 12 + 1 over 3= 11 over 12 + 4 over 12 = 15 over 12 or 1 and 3 over 12 or 1 and 1 over 4

1/3 + 3/4= (4 + 3)/12= 7/12

If the equasion is 3/4 - 5/12 then the answer is 1/3.

3/4 + 2/3 = (3*3)/(4*3) + (2*4)/(3*4) = 9/12 + 8/12 = 17/12 or 1 and 5/12
