Q. How to Subtract fractions with the same denominators?
Ans.
Subtracting fractions is basically the same as adding them. If you don't know how to add fractions, you should practice that first. Then come back here and learn to subtract. (Go to adding fractions with the same denominator, or go to adding fractions with different denominators.)
Subtracting fractions with the same denominators
It's just the same as adding them-you only subtract the numerators (the tops), and you leave the denominators alone!
Again, this is pretty easy, right? 7 - 2 = 5, and you leave the denominator, 9, alone.
Just as with addition, there are two rules that you must remember:
• The denominators must be the same!
• Leave the denominators alone!
Here are some more examples:
