    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

  • 6th grade -

    No.

    15 7/7 - 10 2/7 = 5 5/7

  • 6th grade -

    but what if the problem is 16 2/7 - 10

  • 6th grade -

    If that's the problem, then the answer is 6 2/7

    10 + 6 2/7 = 16 2/7
