**Anonymous**, Monday, March 9, 2009 at 2:27pmmake 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

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, March 9, 2009 at 2:29pmFirst, 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 = ?
