In order, they are $12$, $\frac{45}{4}$, and $\frac{41}{4}$.

#### Explanation:

For the second number in the series, you subtract $\frac{3}{4}$ from $\frac{51}{4}$, which results in

$\frac{51 - 3}{4} = \frac{48}{4}$

which can also be called $12$.

Repeat this process two more times:

$\frac{48}{4} - \frac{3}{4} = \frac{48 - 3}{4} = \frac{45}{4}$

$\frac{45}{4} - \frac{3}{4} = \frac{45 - 3}{4} = \frac{41}{4}$
