the equation is s/12-s/2= 5s/4.  I punched in the LCD which is 12 but when I look to check in the back of my book it says the answer for the equation is 0.

I think there is some misprinting in the question

s/12 - s/12 = 0

s/12 - s/2 

take lcm

if  s/12 - s/2 =      (s-6s)/12  =  -5s/12

if s/2 - s/12 =     (6s-s/12    = 5s/12

it cant be 5s/4
