    you might just be right.

  • Math -

    3 1/15 - 3 11/30

    Let's convert these into improper fractions:

    46/15 - 101/30

    Now we want a comman denominator:

    (46 x 2)/(15 x 2) - 101/30
    92/30 - 101/30

    Now we can subtract the top numbers and keep the denominator:

    -9/30

    Now let's simply by dividing by 3:
    -3/10
