    Length of red ribbon found:  1 1/3 yd + 1 1/2 yd  = 2 5/6 yd total

    Length of blue ribbon:  1/2 yd + 1/4 yd = 3/4 yd total

    Length of red ribbon less length of blue ribbon = 2 5/6 yd – 3/4 yd, or

    (since the LCD is 12)   2 10/12 – 9/12 = 2 1/12 yd.

    Jan has 2 1/12 yd more red ribbon than she has blue ribbon.
