how do i find the answer to 2/3-\$1.58

• algebra -

Are you asking what is 2/3 of \$1.58?

If so, you should not have put a minus sign between them.

You cannot subtract a number with dimensions (dollars in this case) from a dimensionless number like 2/3.

2/3 of \$1.58 is \$1.05 and 1/3 cent
That would usually be rounded to \$1.05
