$\frac{11}{60}$
Make the fractions similar using their LCD of $60$: $\frac{3}{5}-\frac{5}{12} \\=\frac{3\color{blue}{(12)}}{5\color{blue}{(12)}}-\frac{5\color{blue}{(5)}}{12\color{blue}{(5)}} \\=\frac{36}{60}-\frac{25}{60}$ Subtract the numerators then copy the denominator to obtain: $=\frac{36-25}{60} \\=\frac{11}{60}$
