11 1/4 - 5 8/9

- Math -
**Barb**, Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 11:29pmThe LCD is 36.

You will get 11 9/36 - 5 32/36.

You cannot subtract the fraction, therefore you have to borrow one from the 11 (36/35 = 1 Then add 9 to 36 which gives 45).

10 45/36 - 5 32/36 = 9/36 = 1/4

You have to reduce the fraction.
