if the question u are asking is something like this
1/2 - ( - 1/2 )
then the answer is simple
all you have to do is solve the equation
1/2 - ( - 1/2 ) = 1/2 + 1/2 = 2/2 = 1
its the - (-1/2) that is important
remember the rule
minus and minus equal plus
plus and plus equal plus
minus and plus equal minus
and i hope it helps :)
Subtracting a negative fraction is the same as adding its positive equivalent.
You just go ahead. You will end up with a negative answer.
that's what she said
In the same way that you would answer a fraction subtract another fraction. The result could be either positive or negative, just as is the case with negative whole numbers.
Turn the proper fraction into an improper fraction.
change the mixed # into a fraction
It can be a negative or positive fraction, a negative or positive integer, or zero.
i think you just add it and put the negative sign in front of it
The same as any two fractions. In this case, the answer will be negative.
Pie charts make nice fraction diagrams. Each fraction that you subtract is equivalent to taking out a slice of pie.
Similar fractions are fractions with the same denominator. In order to add or subtract fractions they need to be similar.
You have to get common denominators and then subtract the biggest numerator (top number) by the smallest, you may have to cnacel the fraction down to get the smallest possible fraction
