    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 - , 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.
