To find the simplified value of the expression ( \frac{3}{12} - \frac{1}{8} + \frac{5}{6} ), we first need to find a common denominator for all the fractions. The least common multiple (LCM) of 12, 8, and 6 is 24.

Now, we'll rewrite each fraction with the common denominator of 24:

[ \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} ] [ \frac{5}{6} = \frac{5 \times 4}{6 \times 4} = \frac{20}{24} ]

Now, we can rewrite the expression with the common denominator:

[ \frac{6}{24} - \frac{3}{24} + \frac{20}{24} ]

Combining the fractions:

[ \frac{6 - 3 + 20}{24} = \frac{23}{24} ]

So, the simplified value of ( \frac{3}{12} - \frac{1}{8} + \frac{5}{6} ) is ( \frac{23}{24} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
