what is 42 5/12 minus 27 7/12 equals

  • math -

    Basically 41 and 17/12 minus 27 and 7/12.

    So it's 14 5/6

  • math -

    42 5/12 - 27 7/12
    = 509/12 - 331/12
    = 178/12
    = 89/6
    = 14 5/6 , if you need a mixed number

    but, mixed numbers are such useless numbers, since you cannot do anything with them

    I would prefer the answer of 89/12
