# How do you solve 8/12 - C = 3/24?

Jun 12, 2017

$C = \frac{13}{24}$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{8}{12} - C = \frac{3}{24}$

$\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{\frac{8}{12}} - \frac{8}{12}}} - C = \frac{3}{24} - \frac{8}{12}$

$- C = \frac{3}{24} - \frac{8}{12}$

$- C = \frac{3}{24} - \frac{16}{24}$

$\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{-}}} C = \textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{-}}} \frac{13}{24}$

$C = \frac{13}{24}$
