A bottle of juice holds 3/8 gallon when it is full, if 1/3 of the juice has been poured out, how much juice is left? Is this subtracting fractions or multiplying??

subtract

3/8 - 1/3

9/24 - 8/24= 1/24

Both. First multiply.

3/8 * 1/3 = 3/24 = 1/8

Now subtract.

3/8 - 1/8 = 2/8 = 1/4 of a gallon
