how do you solve a problem when you have one whole # with a whole # and fraction.
this is subtracting
ex: 16
10 2/7
________________

You need to change 16 to 15 7/7.
15 7/7  10 2/7 = ? 
sooo will it be the same if you had
16 2/7
10
______________
you would have to change 10 into 9 and and put 7/7
so it would be like this
16 2/7
10 7/7 but you would have take something to make it a problem 
No.
15 7/7  10 2/7 = 5 5/7 
but what if the problem is 16 2/7  10

If that's the problem, then the answer is 6 2/7
10 + 6 2/7 = 16 2/7 
ok thank you so much! :)

You're very welcome.
