Make the fractions equivalent then subtract
What is the answer for 8 1/3 - 5 2/6
You need a common denominator in order to add or subtract fractions.
it stay the same when you subtract fractions and when you add fractions.
Dissimilar fractions have different denominators and their lowest common denominator must be found in order to add them up.
Dissimilar fractions are fractions that have different denominators.
no, to add and subtract like and unlike fractions the denominator has to be the same,
In fractions, you can NEVER add or subtract
Because you can't add or subtract fractions that have different denominators. Making them like fractions, by multiplying so the denominators are the same, you can add and/or subtract them.
I assume you mean, with different denominators. If you want to add the fractions, subtract them, or compare them (determine which one is greater), you have to convert them to similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first. Converting to similar fractions is not necessary, and usually doesn't even help, if you want to multiply or divide fractions.
You have to convert them to equivalent similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first.
Dissimilar fractions may or may not be proper fractions.

By finding the lowest common multiple of the denominators.
it is important to learn how to add and subtract fractions because we can use it when a time comes , when we have our own business and others .
It is an instruction for you to carry out the arithmetic operation of subtraction on fractions whose denominators are not the same.
Make them into improper fractions, find the least common denominator, convert them, subtract, reduce if possible.
Because to add fractions, the denominators must be equal.
Dissimilar fractions have different denominators.
If the fractions have the same denominator, add and subtract the numerators as if the denominators weren't there and put the result over that denominator. Reduce if possible. If the fractions have different denominators, find the LCM of the denominators and convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with like denominators. Then add and subtract the numerators as if the denominators weren't there and put the result over that denominator. Reduce if possible.
To add and subtract fractions, you need common denominators. To find the common denominator, take the LCM of the denominators you wish to add or subtract.
In order to add or subtract fractions, they must have the same denominator.
The same as with positive ones. Make sure they have the same denominator and add or subtract their numerators.
