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.

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.
