Subtracting mixed fractions? You could first convert each to an improper fraction. If they don't have common denominators, then find a common denominator and use it to rewrite each fraction. Then, subtract the fractions and simplify. In this tutorial, take a look at subtracting mixed fractions with unlike denominators!
This tutorial gives you some practice finding a common denominator and the least common denominator of three fractions. There's only one least common denominator, but there are many common denominators. This tutorial gives you one. Can you find another?
Fractions come in all sorts of flavors, and in this tutorial you'll learn how to recognize mixed numbers.
Subtracting fractions with like denominators? Just subtract the numerators and put the result over the common denominator! To see this process in action, check out this tutorial!
Adding mixed fractions? You could first convert each to an improper fraction. If they don't have common denominators, then find a common denominator and use it to rewrite each fraction. Then, add the fractions together and simplify. In this tutorial, take a look at adding together mixed fractions with unlike denominators!
Subtracting mixed fractions with unlike denominators? You could first find a common denominator and use it to rewrite each fraction. Then, subtract the whole numbers and fractions separately. In this tutorial, take a look at subtracting mixed fractions with unlike denominators!
