Subtracting fractions calculatorThis subtracting fractions calculator will help you strengthen your skills of subtracting fractions. Remember the following rules when subtracting fractions: Rule #1: Never add denominators Rule #2: Subtract only the numerators Rule #3: Subtract the numerators only and only if the denominators are the same For example, 6/2  1/2 = 5/2 1/2  1/3 = ? You cannot subtract the numerators because the denominators are not the same Look for equivalent fractions to make the denominators the same before subtracting the numerators 1/2  1/3 = 3/6  2/6 = 1/6 If one denominator divide the other denominator, the calculator below will use the highest denominator as the common denominator. That is how I made it because it keeps your calculation simple. For example, 3/8  1/4 4 divide 8, so you can choose 8 as a common denominator 3/8  1/4 = 3/8  1/4 = 3/8  2/8 = 1/8 Also, the calculator will not reduce the answer. I am still working on a calculator that will reduce fractions.Stay tune! Still struggling with fractions? Get rid of your fears and frustrations once and for all! Buy my ebook.
