You need to simply subtract two numbers. It is confusing because the numbers are in the form of mixed fractions. You need to convert each into an improper fraction first before subtracting.

so wat is it

OpenStudy (anonymous):

How do you express 12 2/3 as a fraction?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i dont know i just need the answer

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Do you not want to know? I can help if you do.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i do

OpenStudy (anonymous):

12 2/3 = 12 + 2/3 = (12*3 +2)/3 = ? 7 1/2 = 7 + 1/2 = (7*2 + 1)/2 = ? Remaining = total minus used. So, you subtract the two numbers above. They are fractions. So, you need to take the common denominator and subtract.
