Alright, when adding or subtracting fractions, your denominators (the bottom numbers) must match. So we will change 1/4 to it's equivalent fraction 4/16. Then you can subtract the numerators (top numbers). Remember the denominator doesn't change when subtracting.

13/16 - 4/16 = (13-4)/16 = 9/16.

UNLESS your order of the operations is in one of the other three forms (unlikely):

13/(16 - 1/4) = 13/(64/4 - 1/4) = 13/((64-1)/4) = 13/(63/4) = (13*4)/63 = 52/63.

OR

13/((16-1)/4) = 13/(15/4) = (13*4)/15 = 52/15.

OR

(13/(16-1))/4 = (13/15)/4 = 13/(15*4) = 13/60.

Hey Mate!!! The Answer Is 17!!! They First Added 2 Then Subtracted it With 1 And Do It All Over Again To Get The Numbers But For This Question The Answer Is 17.

Here are the steps to solve this problem: 1. Convert 1/8 so that it has the same denominator as 11/16 (that is, multiply numerator and denominator by 2). 1/8 = 2/16 2. Add the numerators. 11/16 + 2/16 = 13/16 13/16 cannot be reduced. So, 11/16 + 1/8 = 13/16.

1/4 - 3/10 = -1/20
