Subtracting Fraction Worksheets





In this page subtracting fraction worksheets you can get 5 worksheets on subtracting two fractions with common denominators. This will refresh your knowledge in fractions.

Here you can find practice problems on subtracting fraction with commondenominator. Here we have given some example problems with detailed solution. After that you can find worksheets. It is very simple to subtract any two fractions with common denominator. In these kinds of problems we will have two fractions with same denominator. We can put only one denominator instead of those two denominators ten we can combine the numerator. We have shown different examples. After combining the two fractions we can simplify the fraction if it is possible.

Example 1:

Question:

6/10 - 3/10

These two fractions are having same denominator. That is 10. So we can put only one of them.

Solution :

         = (6-3)/10

         = 3/10

Example 2:

Question:

3/7 - 4/7

These two fractions are having same denominator. That is 7. So we can put only one of them.

Solution :

         = (3-4)/7

         = -1/7

Example 3:

Question:

3/17 - 4/34

These two fractions are having different denominator. Here the L.C.M is 34. To make both numbers as 34 we have to multiply the first fraction by 2.

Solution :

         =  (3/17) x (2/2) - 4/34

         =  (6/34)-4/34

         =  (6-4)/34

         =  2/34

         =  1/17

Example 4:

Question:

13/26 - 4/39

These two fractions are having different denominator. Here the L.C.M is 78. To make both numbers as 78 we have to multiply the first fraction by 3 and the second fraction by 2.

Solution :

         =  (13/26) x (3/3) - (4/39) x (2/2)

         =  (39/78) - (8/78)

         =  (39 - 8)/78

         =  31/78
