Change the whole number into an improper fraction with the same denominator as the fraction and then subtract accordingly
First, turn the fraction into a improper fraction. Then find a common denominator between the two numbers. After this, subtract strait across, but leave the denominator the same.
You can subtract the bigger fraction by the smaller fraction and then put a minus sign in front of the answer.
How to subtract 2 from two eighths
Subtract the smaller fraction from the larger one.
By changing the mixed number into an improper fraction and ensuring that they both have the same denominators simply then subtract one improper fraction from the other improper fraction.
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.
You can either convert the decimal to a fraction and then subtract (3/4 - 0.5 = 3/4 - 2/4 = 1/4), OR you can convert the fraction to a decimal and then subtract (3/4 - 0.5 = 0.75 - 0.5 = 0.25).
Turn the proper fraction into an improper fraction.
If denominators (bottom numbers) are the same,subtract numerators (top numbers).If not you need to make the denominators the same and then subtract numerators.
Pie charts make nice fraction diagrams. Each fraction that you subtract is equivalent to taking out a slice of pie.
Just simply add/subtract the numerators then copy the denominator.
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
To get the right answer when you add or subtract them.
The answer is called a difference, just like if you had subtracted two integers. The fact that the answer is quantitatively a fraction doesn't matter in regards to its name.
(-1/2) - (1/4) = -3/4 Done!
Never. You could write a fraction as a mixed fraction if you like and then the mixed fraction would have a different denominator (e.g.: 23/2 = 11 1/2)
change the mixed # into a fraction
You convert the mixed numeral into an improper fraction. Now subtract the improper fraction from the whole number by putting the whole number over 1.
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. To add or subtract mixed numbers, add or subtract the fractions, then add or subtract the whole numbers. 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...
