    First thing you do is make all the denominators the same, these can all be multiplied up to 12.

    8/12 11/12 10/12 7/12

    Next thing you gotta do is find the fastest and slowest, ( the names don’t matter because we are not identifying the fastest and slowest, only the difference ) 11/12 and 4/12

    Last, we needa subtract these two to get our answer.

    11/12 – 7/12 = 4/12 or 1/3

    Answer

    You make all the denominators to 12.

    That makes Gilbert the fastest and Simon the slowest.
