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

but what if the problem is 16 2/7 - 10

**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
