The difference is two thirds (2/3)

To answer these questions, one needs to turn mixed fractions, such as eight and two thirds, into (im)proper fractions, such as twenty six thirds. The question then becomes what is the difference between 26 thirds and 28 thirds. The answer:

28/3-26/3 = (28-26)/3 = 2/3
