To start with, you can set aside the fractions, and realize that you're dealing with whole numbers as well. 10 minus 4 is 6. So your new question is, what is six and two thirds minus three fourths. Now, let's get rid of the improper fraction. 6 x 3 = 18 18 + 2 = 20 Your new question is what is twenty thirds minus three fourths: 20/3 - 3/4 The lowest common denominator of thirds and fourths is 12. So, 20/3 x 4/4 = 80/12 3/4 x 3/3 = 9/12 So now we have eighty twelfths minus nine twelfths: 80/12 - 9/12 = 71/12 Simplifying this gives us 5 and 11/12ths.

What is 2 and a half minus 1 and 2 thirds?

You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the same. In this case, we can use sixths. So two and three sixths (two and a half), minus one and four sixths (one and two thirds), would equal five sixths. Another way to do it is to convert the whole numbers to sixths as well. Fifteen sixths minus ten sixths equals five sixths.
