A student walks 1/4 Mile from her home to the store on her way to a friend's house at the store is one third of the wave to her friend's house how far is her friend's house from her home

Accepted Solution

1/4-1/3= 1/12 u can do this by:- Converting 1/4 to 3/12and converting 1/3 to 4/12 since u need a common denominator to subtract. So 4/12- 3/12 = 1/12. Or there can be other methods to subtract by converting into a decimal and/or converting back into fraction. I was also confused in this problem but the store is not between its at the end. So, it was like this her own home and then her friend's home then the store.
