Subtract six and one-half minus four and seven-tenths. Justify your steps.

  • math - , Monday, May 7, 2012 at 12:55pm

    6 1/2 - 4 7/10

    When we subtract fractions, we must use a common denominator.

    6 1/2 = 6 5/10

    6 5/10 - 4 7/10

    Now we need to borrow (or regroup).

    6 5/10 = 5 15/10

    5 15/10 - 4 7/10 = 1 8/10 = 1 4/5
