A piece of metal 3 7/8 inches long is to be cute from a longer piece of 5 1/16 inches.What will be the length of the remaining piece?

  • math - ,

    make sure all the parts with fractions have the same denominator, then it should be easy.

    7/8 = 14/16
    So: 5 and 1/16 - 3 and 14/16

  • math - ,

    First, you need the common denominator -- so 3 7/8 = 3 14/16

    5 1/16 - 3 14/16

    Change: 5 1/16 to 4 17/16

    4 17/16 - 3 14/16 = ?

  • math - ,

    So 1 3/16?But how did you change th 5 1/16 to 4 17/16?
