if 5/17 of region is shaded what part is not?

  • 5th grade -

    if 5/17 is shaded, then the rest is not, therefore,
    1 - 5/17
    in order to subtract this, we first convert 1 into a fraction such that its denominator (*denominator is the number below the line of a fraction) is the same as the second term (which is 17),, thus we can rewrite 1 as 17/17 :
    17/17 - 5/17
    since they have the same denominator, we just subtract the numerators (*numerator is the number above the line of a fraction):
    (17-5)/17 = 12/17
