Answer

$40 \frac{5}{6}$

Work Step by Step

$76 \frac{1}{12} - 35 \frac{1}{4}$ (Make both fractions share a denominator of 12 to subtract them **Note that we took 1 away from 76 and added it to the fraction making it $\frac{13}{12}$**) = $75 \frac{13}{12} - 35 \frac{3}{12}$ (Now subtract the whole numbers and the factions separately) $75 - 35 = 40$ $\frac{13}{12} - \frac{3}{12} = \frac{10}{12} = \frac{5}{6}$ Now put the fraction and whole number back together, giving you the answer: $40 \frac{5}{6}$
