Subtracting Mixed Fractions

3 ⅖ - 1 ⅝

17/5 - 13/8 (5 x 8 = 40)

136/40 - 65/40 = 71/40 (136 - 65 = 71)


1 31/40


First we have to make the mixed fraction into an improper fraction, to do this we will multiply the whole number by the denominator and then add that number to the numerator. That leaves us with 17/5 - 13/8. Now we have to find the common denominator which is 40 because 5 x 8 = 40. Now we do the same to the top as we did to the bottom. After that we subtract the numerators which gave us 71/40 which can be simplified to 1 31/40 because 40 goes into 71 x1 with the remainder of 31.
