Natalia picked 7 1/6 bushels of apples today and 4 5/8 bushels yesterday. How much more did she pick today?

• Math -

7 1/6 7 8/48 6 56/48
-4 5/8 = -4 30/48 = -4 30/48 =

2 26/48 = 2 13/48
First find the LCD
LCD is 48
You cannot subtract 8 from 30. So you have to borrow 1. 1 = 48/48. Now 7 becomes 6. Add 8+48 = 56. Now subtract 6 56/48 from 4 30/48 = 2 26/48. Now reduce. The answer is 2 13/24 She picked 2 13/24 more today!
