SUBTRACTING MIXED AND WHOLE NUMBERS CALCULATOR

SOLUTION

ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION

● A mixed number $\color{chocolate}a\color{black}\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}b}{\color{#3a5998}c}$ can be written as $\color{chocolate}a\color{black}+\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}b}{\color{#3a5998}c}$

$\mathrm{\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\color{chocolate}1\color{black}\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}}$ $=\mathrm{\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\left(\color{chocolate}1\color{black}+\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}\right)}$ $=\mathrm{\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\color{chocolate}1\color{black}-\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}}$

● Subtract the whole and fraction parts separately.

$\mathrm{\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\color{chocolate}1\color{black}-\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}}$ $=\mathrm{\left(\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\color{chocolate}1\color{black}\right)-\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}}$

● The result of subtraction among the whole parts is 1.

$\mathrm{\color{chocolate}2\color{black}-\color{chocolate}1\color{black}=\color{chocolate}1}$

● Add the whole number to the fraction.

$\mathrm{\color{chocolate}1\color{black}-\dfrac{\color{#3a5998}1}{\color{#3a5998}3}}$ $=\mathrm{\dfrac{\color{olive}2}{\color{olive}3}}$
