    3/2 m is the total length of the wood
    if 2/3 m and 3/4 m are cut from it then total (2/3+3/4)m is cut from it
    so the answer is 3/2-(2/3+3/4)
    =3/2-17/12
    =1/12 m
    so 1/12 m wood is left

    The piece of wood is 3/2 meter long. Since 2/3 meter and 3/4 meter length are being detached.
    Hence the piece left=( 3/2 - 2/3 -3/4 )meter
    = __18-8-9____________meter
    12
    = 1/12 meter

    Hi,
    Total length of piece of wood =3/2 meter
    Length of two pieces cut from it = 2/3 meter and 3/4 meter.
    Length of wood remaining after cutting two pieces from it
    = 3/2- ( 2/3 + 3/4 )
    = 1/12 meter

    So, remaining length of piece of wood = 1/12 meter.

    The total length of the wood=3/2 m
    2/3 m and 3/4 m are cut from it.
    Then total amount of wood cut from it =(2/3+3/4)m=17/12m
    so the amount of wood left=3/2-17/12
    =1/12 m
    so the amount of wood left is 1/12 m.
