Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought the least common denominator would be 4 becuse 4 goes into 12 and 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sure, Since we established that the LCD is 24, You have to make both of the fractions in the form where the denominator is 24 for both. For 7/8, to make it have the denominator 24, multiply 3/3 to it and you get: 21/24 For 5/12, to make the denominator 24, multiply 2/2 to it and you get: 10/24 Subtract both fractions together and youll get 11/24
