How do you subtract 3/5 from 9 1/5 I am having trouble understanding the work can u help

9 1/5  3/5
41/5  3/5
(413)/5
you finish it. 
Am i suppose to multiply 5 x 9 and add 1 I come up with 46/5. Am I suppose to subtract 3/5 from that answer?

exactly right
the 41/5 must have been a typo, since that is 8 1/5
