I vote for A.
You're looking for the fraction of one dozen.

Thank you. But can you show me you D is wrong? Since 1 dozen equals 12 and so I thought you'd need to subtract 1/3 and 1/6 from 12

Math  Ms. Sue, Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 8:03pm
What would you get if you subtract 1/3 and 1/6 from 12?

Anabelle, this isn't a place to tell people to follow you on instagram. And if that's your dream, well.. you should really think about your life.
Sorry, couldn't resist replying to that.
