How do you subtract mixed numbers that do not have the same denominator?

Find a common denominator of the fraction parts (the least common denominator is the popular choice). If the fraction part of the subtrahend is bigger than that of the minuend, you need to subtract 1 from the integer (whole number) part of the minuend and add it (as a fraction) to the fraction part. For example, 5 3/7 becomes 4 10/7. Then you can subtract the fraction parts by subtracting the numerators, and subtract the integer parts, provided the integer part of the minuend is greater than or equal to that in the subtrahend. If not, reverse the roles of the minuend and subtrahend and use the above method to subtract, then make the sign of the difference negative.
