quotient $= \textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{5 + d}{12 - w}}$

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{c y a n}{\text{The quotient of ")color(red)(5" plus "d)" and "color(blue)(12" minus } w}$

$= \left(\textcolor{red}{5 \text{ plus "d))/(color(blue)(12" minus } w}\right)$

$= \frac{\textcolor{red}{5 + d}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{12 \text{ minus } w}}$

$= \frac{\textcolor{red}{5 + d}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{12 - w}}$
