EXPLAIN WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO RENAME 4 1FORTH IF YOU SUBTRACT 3 FOURTH

  • math -

    It's easier to subtract or add similar fractions, rather than fractions and whole numbers.

    4 1/4 - 3/4 = ???

    5/4 - 4/3 - 2/4 = 1/2

  • math -

    1/4 is lesser than 3/4 ,so 3/4 can not subtract from 1/4 .

    4 1/4 gets renamed to 3 5/4

    then 4 1/4 - 3/4 =3 5/4 - 3/4

    =3 2/4
