True

Make them into improper fractions, find the least common denominator, convert them, subtract, reduce if possible.

SUBTRACTION: You first turn both mixed numbers into improper fractions. If needed, change the denominators into like denominators. Next, subtract the two improper fractions and reduce if necessary. ADDITION: If needed, turn denominators so they are the same number. Next, add and reduce if necessary.
