You need to change 16 to 15 7/7.
15 7/7  10 2/7 = ?

sooo will it be the same if you had
16 2/7
10
______________
you would have to change 10 into 9 and and put 7/7
so it would be like this
16 2/7
10 7/7 but you would have take something to make it a problem

No.
15 7/7  10 2/7 = 5 5/7

6th grade  Sophie, Friday, October 29, 2010 at 9:54pm
but what if the problem is 16 2/7  10

6th grade  Ms. Sue, Friday, October 29, 2010 at 9:59pm
If that's the problem, then the answer is 6 2/7
10 + 6 2/7 = 16 2/7
