What is a subtracting mixed number?

How do you add or subtract unlike fraction as a mixed numbers in simplest?

I think that the easiest way is probably (1) to convert to improper fractions, (2) then get a common denominator, (3) add or subtract, (4) reduce, and finally (5) convert back to a mixed number. That isn't what you are taught in school. In school you would (1) go straight to the common denominator then (2) see if it is possible to subtract, you don't have as many difficulties to consider in addition, then (3) you may have to 'borrow' 1 from a whole number and turn it into a fraction to make the denominator large enough to subtract, (4) subtract the whole numbers and subtract the fractions, (5) reduce the fraction as needed. In addition you just (1) get a common denominator (2) add whole numbers and fractions (3) reduce the fraction and in some problems change it into a proper fraction and increase the whole number.


How do you change a whole number into a fraction without a calculator?

How do your borrow from a whole number when subtracting fractions?

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...

How do you subtract a whole number from a fraction?

In order to subtract a fraction from a whole number one should take the bottom number from a fraction, for example if the fraction was 1 10th then the bottom number would be 10. The whole number should be divided by the bottom number, then the top number equivalent removed from the total whole number and this will leave the fraction number once the fraction has been subtracted.

turn the whole number into an inproper fraction by doing this: multiply it by the denominator of the fraction.that answer is your numerator make the fractions denominator the whole number's denominator.then subtract just the numerators.you should have an improper fraction as your final answer, so turn that into a mixed number.
