# Subtracting Fractions Level 1

## The 5-step plan

At the first level of subtracting fractions, you'll answer questions with equivalent fractions smaller than 1. When the fractions are equivalent, you only have to subtract the numerators (the top numbers of the fractions) and the denominators (the bottom numbers) remain the same. Always check to see whether you can simplify the answer.

## Description Subtracting Fractions 1

Example 1: 23 - 13
First we check whether the denominators are the same. Yes, both are 3.
Now you only have to subtract the numerators. 2 - 1 = 1

23 - 13 = 13 Can we simplify? No, that's not possible. The answer remains 13.

Example 2:36 + 16
First we check whether the denominators are the same. Yes, both are 6.
Now you only have to subtract the numerators. 3 - 1 = 2

36 - 16 = 26 Can we simplify? Yes. 26 = 13. The answer is 36 - 16 = 13
