Change the whole number into an improper fraction with the same denominator as the fraction and then subtract accordingly

You convert the mixed numeral into an improper fraction. Now subtract the improper fraction from the whole number by putting the whole number over 1.

A mixed number has a whole number and a fraction. A fraction is a number that is less than whole and that has a denominator underneath a numerator. To add or subtract mixed numbers, add or subtract the fractions, then add or subtract the whole numbers. If the fraction portion of a mixed number, such as 2 5/6, is more than the fraction portion of the mixed number you're trying to subtract from, such as 3 1/6, you must borrow from the whole number of the mixed number you're trying to subtract from to make its fraction bigger...

Yes, you can but you need to "rename" the whole part of the first mixed number.

2,789/10= 2,78.9. Just move the decimal place over one spot. So, if the answer has to be a whole number, not a fraction, then please subtract 9 from the number to get 2,780. No fraction.
