## What is meant by Subtracting Fractions?

In Mathematics, the fraction is a value that defines the part of a whole. While subtracting fractions you need to check whether the fraction is like or unlike. Fractions with the same denominator are called Like Fractions whereas the one with different fractions is called, unlike fractions.

### Steps to Subtract Fractions

Steps to subtract fractions are similar to adding fractions. Follow the procedure listed for like denominators and unlike denominators.

Subtracting Fractions with like denominators

For like fractions, numerator value can be directly subtracted. If you are subtracting the fractions with like denominator you can simply subtract the numerators and keep the denominators the same.

Example

Subtract 2/ 5 and 1/5?

Solution:

Given Inputs 2/5 and 1/5

As the denominators are same simply subtract the numerators and you will get the result as follows

(2/5 )- (1/5)=1/5

Subtracting Fractions with unlike denominators

Subtracting Fractions with unlike denominators isn't that easy. For the ones having different denominators follow the below guidelines

• Take the LCM of denominators.
• Now change the denominator value to the LCM Value and multiply both numerator and denominator by the same number.
• At last, subtract the fraction values.

Example

Subtract 2/3 and 1/5?

Solution: Given Input Values are 2/3 and 1/5

As the denominators aren't the same find the LCM of denominators. As per our knowledge, LCM of 3 and 5 is 15.

3 goes into 15 5 times multiply top and bottom 2/3 by 5

5 goes into 15 3 times multiply top and bottom 1/5 by 3 ### How to use the Subtracting Fractions Calculator?
