To simplify ( \frac{3}{12}  \frac{1}{8} ), follow these steps:

Find a common denominator for the fractions, which in this case is 24, as it's the least common multiple of 12 and 8.

Rewrite both fractions with the common denominator: [ \frac{3}{12} = \frac{3 \times 2}{12 \times 2} = \frac{6}{24} ] [ \frac{1}{8} = \frac{1 \times 3}{8 \times 3} = \frac{3}{24} ]

Now, subtract the fractions: [ \frac{6}{24}  \frac{3}{24} = \frac{6  3}{24} = \frac{3}{24} ]

Simplify the result, if possible: [ \frac{3}{24} ] can be simplified by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 3: [ \frac{3 \div 3}{24 \div 3} = \frac{1}{8} ]
Therefore, ( \frac{3}{12}  \frac{1}{8} ) simplifies to ( \frac{1}{8} ).
