the first part is just 3/12 + 4/12 + 2/2

= 3/12 + 4/12 + 12/12= 19/12 of the school.

The second part is 19/12 - 3/12 = 16/12

Both your answer and Sam's are wrong.

Assuming that 2/12 (not 2/2) likes baseball --

What part of the school population likes basketball,baseball,or football?

**9/12 = 3/4**

How much larger is this then the part of the student population that prefers soccer?

**3/12 = 1/4
**

It's three times as large.
