**Ms. Sue**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:44pmYes.

14 1/4 - 12 3/8 =

14 2/8 - 12 3/8 =

13 10/8 - 12 3/8 = 1 7/8

- Math -
**Ms. Sue**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:46pmThe easier way is to convert the fractions to decimals and run it through a calculator.

14 1/4 = 14.25

12 3/8 = 12.375

- Math -
**Anonymous**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:47pmhmmmm how did you get 13 10/8?

- Math -
**Anonymous**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:48pmok.... thank you

- Math -
**DrBob222**, Friday, July 31, 2009 at 9:55pmI don't see a 13 10/8 anywhere in the answers.

Do it as Ms Sue did.

14 1/4 = 14.25

12 3/8 = 12.375

14.25 - 12.375 = 1.875

OR

convert fractions.

14 1/4 = 57/4 = 114/8

12 3/8 = 99/8

114/8 - 99/8 = 15/8 = 1 7/8 and if you divide 7/8 on the calculator you get .875 so 1 7/8 = 1.875 and the two methods give the same answer.
