7 1/6 - 6 4/6 = ?

could you please show me the steps to do this problem?

thank you,
ryan

7 1/6 = 6 7/6
- 6 4/6 = -6 4/6
-------
3/6 = 1/2

mixed fractions are useless in calculations so the first thing you have to do is change them to improper fractions

7 1/6 + 6 4/6
=43/6 + 40/6
=83/6 or 13 5/6

1. The very first thing you have to do with a Mixed fraction is to turn it into a improper one. By doing that you have to multiply the mixed number by the denominator like:

7 1/6 : 7x6=42

Then your fraction is improper and looks like this: 42/6
Also add the fraction beside the mixed number to your improper fraction like this: 42/6 + 1/6 = 43/6

Do this with your other mixed fraction too and youll end up with the answer.

7x6= 42/6 + 1/6 = 43/6
6x6= 36/6 + 4/6 = 40/6
43/6 - 40/6 = 3/6

Simplify 3/6 and get 1/2
