Subtraction of fractions.

Steps to take : -

#1 ; Convert to improper (top heavy) fractions. Not required in this case.

#2 ; Bring to a common denominator; 6 X 8 = 48

#3 ; Bring the numerators to the equivalent values for a denominator of 48.

#4 ; Subtract the numerators

#5 ; Place the numerator over the denominator

#6 ; Reduce the fraction to its lowest terms.

Hence

#1 ; Not required in this caser , as there are no whole number coefficients.

#2 ; 4 x 8 = 48

#3 ; 5 x 8 = 40 & 3 x 6 = 18

#4 ; 40 - 18 = 22

#5 ; 22/48

#6 ; 11/24 The ANSWER!!!!

NB For addition of fractions, complete the same steps , except at #4 , where you add the numerators.

NNB Multiplication and division of fractions has a different 'steps to take' structure.

6 to the power of 6 minus 3 to the power of 3 = 46,629

3/5 = 6/10

3/6 can be simplified to 1/2, and 1/2 is greater than 2/5. So, 3/6 is greater then 2/5.

(6/10) / (1/5) = (6/10) * (5/1) = 30/10 = 3(6/10) / (1/5) = (6/10) * (5/1) = 30/10 = 3(6/10) / (1/5) = (6/10) * (5/1) = 30/10 = 3(6/10) / (1/5) = (6/10) * (5/1) = 30/10 = 3
