Hello,

I presume that you want to know the fraction of a particular television with respect to the total amount of televisions.

The sum of all TV-sets is 42. Therefore you have to calculate:
$\frac{12}{42}=\frac{2}{7}$

$\frac{16}{42}=\frac{8}{21}$

it's the same result as nr. 1.

$\frac{2}{42}=\frac{1}{21}$
