Subtracting Fractions

Fractions are the Numbers which we can write in form of one number divided by another number. Here we express it as $\frac{p}{q}$, so we write ‘p’ as the numerator and ‘q’ as the denominator. We know that all the mathematical operators can be performed on the Fractions. Here we will work on subtracting fractions.

To learn how to subtract fractions, we need to first convert the mixed fractions to improper fractions. We say that the subtraction of the fractions with different denominators is possible, if we make the denominators same. Also if we subtract 0 from any fraction, the result remains the same fraction.

Example 1:
$\frac{3}{5}$ - 0 = $\frac{3}{5}$

Example 2:
$\frac{7}{3}$ - $\frac{4}{3}$ = $\frac{3}{3}$ = 1

Example 3:
$\frac{9}{2}$ - $\frac{7}{5}$ = $\frac{9*5}{2*5}$ - $\frac{7*2}{5*2}$ = $\frac{45}{10}$ - $\frac{14}{10}$ = $\frac{31}{10}$

Example 4:
$\frac{12}{7}$ - 1 = $\frac{12}{7}$ - $\frac{7}{7}$ = $\frac{5}{7}$

Subtracting Fractions with Different Denominators

Fractions are the Numbers which we can write in form of one number divided by another number. Here we express it as $\frac{p}{q}$, so we write ‘p’ as the numerator and ‘q’ as the denominator. We know that all the mathematical operators can be performed on the Fractions. Here we will work on subtracting Fractions.

Subtracting Fractions with the Same Denominator

Fractions are the Numbers which we can write in form of one number divided by another number. Here we express it as $\frac{p}{q}$, so we write ‘p’ as the numerator and ‘q’ as the denominator. We know that all the mathematical operators can be performed on the Fractions. Here we will work on Subtracting Fractions.

Subtracting Mixed Numbers
