2. 1/3 and 1/4

1/3 is 4/12 and 1/4 is 3/12 they have the same denominator and their difference
is 1/12. The hint is that when you subtract the denominators must be the same.

7. The correct answer is 4/12 and 3/12.
This is because 4+3=7 and 4-3=1 So here,
4/12 + 3/12= 7/12
4/12 - 3/12= 1/12
Therefore, you have to find the answer by adding these different numbers and gets the number also by subtracting but same.
(Now do you understand)?
