    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

    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

    i thought i would only have to go 23/4 but you can reduce that to 5 3/4
