If we multiply both numerator and denominator of 1/4 by 3 , then we get 3/12 !!!

Dude 1 over 4 means 1 over 4. You have one on top and four on bottom. 3 over 12 means 3 over 12. You have three on top and twelve on bottom. They do not mean the same thing!

YES!!!

If you take 3/12 and cancel down by '3' you have '1/4'

More correctly 1/4 is NOT equal to 3/12 , but 1/4 is EQUIVALENT to '3/12'.

If you reduce the fraction 3/12 all the way, it comes out to 1/4, so yes.
