                                               Easy Moderate Difficult



       You got:    points

You should use any means necessary to get the answer, such as mental math, paper and pencils.

However, I strongly recommend that you do not use a calculator!

How to play:

Same denominators

For instance, if the question is 1/2 − 4/2, do (1 − 4)/2 = -3/2 and enter -3/2

Different denominators, but one denominator is a divisor of the second denominator

For instance, if the question is 2/4 - 3/8, 4 is a divisor of 8 because 4 × 2 = 8

So, do (2 × 2)/(4 × 2) − 3/8 = 4/8 − 3/8 = 1/8 and enter 1/8

If the question is 3/10 + 4/5, 5 is a divisor of 10 because 5 × 2 = 10

So, do 3/10 − (4 × 2)/(5 × 2) = 3/10 − 8/10 = -5/10 and enter -5/10

Different denominators, but no denominator is a divisor of the second denominator

If the question is 3/2 − 1/5, 2 is not a divisor of 5 and 5 is not a divisor of 2.

So, do (3 × 5)/(2 × 5) − (1 × 2)/(5 × 2) = 15/10 − 2/10 = 13/10 and enter 13/10

Remember, do not simplify answers and the answer for the numerator can be negative!
