  • Answer:

    18 7/12 miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Luis is running a 26 mile marathon. He has completed 7 5/12 miles so far. How much farther does he have to run?

    We solve the above question using the Subtraction operation

    = 26 miles - 7 5/12 miles

    = 26 miles - 89/12 miles

    Lowest Common Denominator = 12

    = 26/1 miles - 89/12 miles

    = 312 - 89/12

    = 223/12

    = 18.583333333 miles

    = 18 7/12 miles

    He has 18 7/12 miles farther to go
