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.

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...
