6- 3/12 6(12/12)- 3/12 72/12 - 3/12 (72 - 3)/12 69/12 23/4 So there has to be a typo

jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
try writing it as a mixed number

  • jim_thompson5910
or in decimal form

First, reduce the fraction: 6 - 3/12 = 6 - 1/4 = 6/1 - 1/4 Now find a common denominator: the LCD of 1 and 4 is 4 24/4 - 1/4 = 23/4 = 5 3/4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
oh, so why didn't it work the first time?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
how odd
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought i would only have to go 23/4 but you can reduce that to 5 3/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
@jim_thompson5910
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it doesn't reduce, it converts to that
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes that's what i meant
jim_thompson5910
