Find the differences between the following values:

a) 217 and -198
b) 1 2/3 and 3/4
c) \$o.59 and \$1.25

What am I suppose to do?

1. KG

Thats easy

a) 217 - 198 = 19

b) 1 2/3 (mixed fraction) = 5/3 (improper fraction)

5/3 - 3/4 (to find the difference)
= 20/12 - 9/12 (convert to common denominator)
=11/12

c) \$1.25 - \$0.59 = \$0.66

2. Chey

Sorry KG but it is minus a negative which means it is additionand that means it is 415
