Hi Jaeden;

Welcome to Wyzant Answers!!!

12

7

3

We are going to take the denominator, also known as the divisor, of 3, and convert it to 1/3.

(12/7)(1/3)=12/21

Both 12 and 21 can be divided by 3...

4/7

Can you visualize what happened?

12/7

To establish the value of 1/3rd of 12/7, 12 becomes 4 while 7 remains 7.

**divide the 12 by 3 giving 4 ... 4/7**
