I am a mom and I can't remember how to do this... 3 and 2 over 9 minus 1 and 1 over 3 equals p minus 5 and 1 over 2?? ahhhh help me help my daughter please.

3 2/9  1 1/3 ?
that is
3 + 2/9 1  3/9
which is
2  1/9
which is
1 8/9

another way of syaint that
3 2/9 = 29/9
1 1/3 = 4/3 = 12/9
29/9  12/9 = 17/9
17/9 = 1 8/9
