First you convert to a common denominator:

5 6/7 + 1 1/2

= 5 12/14 + 1 7/14

Now you can subtract the integer part and the fractional part separately. 5 - 4 = 1, and 12 - 7 = 5, so the result is:

4 5/14

If the fractional part of the first number is less than the fractional part of the second number, you must take one away from the integer part, and add (in this case) 14/14 to the fractional part, so that you can do the subtraction. This is similar to the concept of "borrowing" when you subtract integers.

Q: How do you subtract 5 and 6 sevenths and 1 one and a half as a mixed number?

Write your answer...

half FractionHalf mixed

Expressed as a mixed number in its simplest form, 4/7 + 1/2 = 1 1/14 or one and one fourteenth.

Two sevenths are closer to a half.

4 sevenths just over half

Yes. If you had 3.5 sevenths, that is exactly a half.

The wording is ambiguous. If the questions means, "From what number can you subtract one-half to get a result of zero?" then the answer is one-half. (1/2) - (1/2) = 0 If the question means, "From what number can you subtract half of the number to get a result of zero?" then the answer is zero. 0 - (1/2)0 = 0

Subtract 0.5

if it doesnt have to be a whole number then half. if it does,... i dont know

four sevenths

1

21/2 is itself a mixed number

3 and 1/2 is a mixed number.

The fraction that lies halfway between 2/7 and 5/7 is 1/2 or one half.

To the nearest half, one half

Some people find it easier to add or subtract whole numbers but yes, you could round to the nearest half.

A mixed fraction is a whole number and a fraction combined into one "mixed" number. Example: 1½ (one and a half) is a mixed fraction (Also called a Mixed Number)

one and a half

1 half

161/2

71/2

4/14

no

5/14

No because half of seven is three and a half

2 1/2 is a mixed number..... 5/2 isn't
