If that didn't help, please post an example of what you're trying to do.

Example: 5 - 2 1/3 how do you get the answer? On my example it says the answer is 2 2/3

You seem to understand this now -- judging from your later post.

5 = 4 3/3

4 3/3 - 2 1/3 = 2 2/3

I solve mine a different way but I just want to know how to solve it like that. WHere do you get the 4 from?

I borrow 3/3 from 5, giving us 4 3/3
