1/3 of the milk carton+ 5/12 of the milk carton+ 1/6 of the milk carton
= (4+5+2)/12 of the milk carton (common denominator).
= 11/12 of the milk carton.
Sammy, Tikki, and Georgia totally drink 11/12 of the milk carton.
1 milk carton 11/12 of the milk carton
= 12/12 of the milk carton 11/12 of the milk carton
= 1/12 of the milk carton.
There is 1/12 of the milk carton left over, so the final answer is 1/12 of the milk carton.
Hope this helps~

First we need to make all the fractions have the same denominator so our denominator is going to be 12 so 1/3=4/12
5/12 we are going to leave it untouched because it already has a denominator of 12 and 1/6=2/12 so
4/12+5/12+2/12=11/12
Now you are going to subtract 12/1211/12 because 12/12 represents a whole so 12/1211/12=1/12 so you have 1/12 of the milk left
