Find the differences between the following values:
a) 217 and 198
b) 1 2/3 and 3/4
c) $o.59 and $1.25
What am I suppose to do?

Thats easy
a) 217  198 = 19
b) 1 2/3 (mixed fraction) = 5/3 (improper fraction)
5/3  3/4 (to find the difference)
= 20/12  9/12 (convert to common denominator)
=11/12
c) $1.25  $0.59 = $0.66 
Sorry KG but it is minus a negative which means it is additionand that means it is 415
