  5. 4/5 - 1/2

    common denominator is the number where they can both divide into equally, for this one, it would be 10. (5 x 2 = 10) (2 x 5 = 10), once you find a common denominator (preferably the lowest common multiple) you must multiply the denominator (with the number to create the common denominator)and the numerator (by the same number multiplied by the denominator). Therefore
    4(x2)/5(x) - 1(x5)/2(x5) =

    8/10 - 5/10
    = 3/10

    (Note: Do not subtract the denominator, ONLY the numerator)
