Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0= 7/12 + (3/5) ....... Your expression = 7/12 3/5 ....... + *  =  (when you multiply a positive number with negative the answer is negative) = (7/12 + 3/5) ....... taking negative common = (7*5 + 12*3/12*5) ...... Adding fractions = (35+36/60) ....... Simplifying = (71/60) = 71/60 ..... Your Answer
