1/4 + 1/12 + 5/6, the LCD is 12, then it will become
3/12 + 1/12 + 10/12

Get their LCD

4 : 4 , 8 , 12
12 : 12
6 : 6, 12
So the denominator will be 12.

Divide the LCD by each of the fraction's denominator and multiply by its numerator.
12 / 4 x 1 = ?
12 / 12 x 1 = ?
12 / 6 x 5 = ?

3 x 1 = ?
1 x 1 = ?
2 x 5 = ?

1
10

= 3 + 1 + 10 = 14

The numerator will be 14, and the denominator will be 12.

Reducing to mixed number, the answer is 1 and 1/6
How?

14 ÷ 12 = 1 ← Whole Number
14 -  12 = 2 ← Numerator

Keep the denominator the same.
1 2/12

Then let us reduce it again.

2 / 2 = 1
12 / 2 = 6
