5/6 - 3/6 = 2/6 which simplifies to 1/3

Because 3 is greater than 1. I suppose it's possible to do it in your head, if you remember that in the world of fourths, 1 - 3 equals 2 but it's easier to subtract 3/4 from 17/4 or 3 and 5/4. As long as you can get to 3 and 1/2, it doesn't really matter, but don't tell your teacher I said that.

An easy way to do this is to manipulate the original number and make sure to "undue" all the manipulations you did. For example: pick any number, add 3, subtract 2, subtract the number you started with, you have 1. Example explained: x + 3 - 2 - x = 1. More complex example: pick any number, multiply by 2, add 4, subtract 2, divide by 2, subtract 2, add 4, subtract the number you started with, you have 3. Explained: (((x * 2) + 4 - 2) / 2) - 2 + 4 - x = (2x + 2) / 2 + 2 = x + 3 - x = 3.

Subtract 2 from 3 to get 1, add that to the 1 we already had to get 2, and multiply that by 4. In short form: 4*(1+(3-2)) = 8.

1/3 - 9/3 = -8/3 or -2 and 2/3

7/8 - 2/6 = 7/8 - 1/3 = 21/24 - 8/24 = 13/24

Subtract the numerator Subtract or add the numerator Subtract or add the numerator ex: 3/4-1/4=2/4 or 1/2 ex: 5/8 + 1/8= 6/8 or 3/4

turn the subtraction sign into an addition sign and the 3 into a negative: 1+-3=-2

5x + 3 = 6x + 1 Subtract 5x from both sides: 3 = x + 1 Subtract 1 from both sides: 2 = x

7/8 - 6/8 = 1/8

To get the right answer. It's not immediately obvious what the sum of 1/2 and 1/3 is. But if you realize that 1/2 = 3/6 and 1/3 = 2/6, then 1/2 + 1/3 = 3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6

Because not always is so. When you subtract a negative number from 2, then the result is a number larger than 2. 2 - 1 = 1; 1< 2 2 - 4 = -2; -2 < 2 but 2 - (-1) = 2 + 1 = 3; 3 > 2

(2/3) / (1/4) = (2/3) * (4/1) = (2*4)/(3*1) = 8/3

6/7 - 2/3 = 18/21 - 14/21 = 4/21

Multiply the numerator and the denominator of one fraction by the same denominator and, if you need to, do multiply the second fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number so they will have like denominators. Then subtract. For example: 1/2 - 1/3 1/2 x 3/3 = 3/6 1/3 x 2/2 = 2/6 3/6 - 2/6 = 1/6 -----> ANSWER

1, 2, 3 and 4 are all factors of 36. 4 - 3 = 1 3 - 2 = 1 2 - 1 = 1

6+2/4*3/3-7+6+5/3-1*1 6+1/2*1-7+6+5/3-1 6+1/2-7+6+5/3-1 =37/6 or 61/6

1/3 is.
