Apr 12, 2017

$= 1 \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Given -

$14 \left(\frac{1}{4}\right) - 12 \left(\frac{1}{6}\right)$

$\left(14 \times \frac{1}{4}\right) - \left(12 \times \frac{1}{6}\right)$

$\left(7 \times \frac{1}{2}\right) - 2$

$\left(\frac{7}{2}\right) - 2$

$\frac{7 - 4}{2} = \frac{3}{2} = 1 \frac{1}{2}$

$= 1 \frac{1}{2}$
