3/5 also equals 6/10 or 6 tenths

The answer is therefore 6 tenths minus 9 tenths = minus 3 tenths

Assuming of course that these portions are from the same object/ number etc. you have 30% less than when you started.

Yes. Imagine slicing a pie into ten pieces. If you take 9 of the 10 pieces you have nine tenth. If you take 3 of the 10 pieces you have three tenth. Clearly 9 pieces of pie are more than 3.
