Time taken by Michal in coloring =  \frac{7}{12}  hours.

Time taken by Vaibhav in coloring = \frac{3}{4}  hours.

The LCM of 12 and 4 is 12. So making the denominator of both fraction equal to 12, we get,


\Rightarrow \frac{7}{12}\:\:and\:\:\frac{9}{12}



For calculating by how much, we do Subtraction


Vaibhav worked longer by the fraction \frac{1}{6}.
