The sum of two numbers is


The sum of two numbers is $\frac{-1}{3}$. If one of the numbers is $\frac{-12}{3}$, find the other.


It is given that the sum of two numbers is $\frac{-1}{3}$, where one of the number $s$ is $\frac{-12}{3}$.

Let the other number be $x$.

$\therefore x+\frac{-12}{3}=\frac{-1}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-1}{3}-\frac{-12}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-1-(-12)}{3}=\frac{-1+12}{3}=\frac{11}{3}$
