either convert the fraction into a decimal or the integer into a fraction. For example if you were attempting to subtract 1/3 from 2, you could either turn 1/3 into 0.3 repeating (by dividing 1 into three) or by turning 2 into 6/3, by placing the denominator from the fraction below the whole number, than multiplying the whole number by its new denominator, thus effectively converting it into a fraction. To subtract 1/3 from 6/3, simply subtract 1 from 6, and keep the denominator (5/3). If you opted to convert the fraction into a decimal earlier, simply subtract the 0.3 repeating from the 2, thinking of the 2 as its other representative, 2.0 repeating, solving to 1.6 repeating (ending eventually in an imaginary 7)
