it stay the same when you subtract fractions and when you add fractions.

multiply the fractions until they have common denominators and then subtract them

Subtract one from the other.If the answer is positive then the first is larger,if the answer is negative, then the second is larger.Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as fractions whereas irrational numbers can't be expressed as fractions.

Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions. If the fractions have the same denominator, you subtract the numerators. If the fractions have different denominators, you have to convert to a common denominator first.Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions.
