Hi Eden,

There are 4 sixteenth notes in each quarter notes, so to represent 3 quarter notes you would need 12 sixteenth notes.

I'm not sure about the nature of the question of the fraction, is it a school question? Was it in relation to anything else?

Have a look at The Rhythm Tree page to see how the notes are related.
