karen decorated her mother's birthday cake. one-third of candles are pink, three-eights are yellow, one-quater are blue and the two remaining candles are white. calculate
(a). the fraction of candles that are white.
(b). the total number of candles on the cake.
a. Add the fractions:
1/3 + 3/8 + 1/4 =
8/24 + 9/24 + 6/24 = 23/24
24/24 - 23/24 = 1/24
