Learn Subtracting Fractions With The Same Denominator

Hello Kids,

We saw how to add two fractions with same denominator in the previous online section. Similarly, here we can learn how to subtract two fractions with same denominator.

  Formula:
 

Fraction-Subtraction

 

Consider the example,

 

Fraction-Subtraction

 
   Step 1:

Since the denominators are same, subtracting numerators alone is sufficient to get the answer. In such cases, learning becomes simple.

  Step 2:

Now children – the next step is to reduce the fractions if possible. In this online math problem, it is not possible to reduce the fraction.

Consider the example2,

 

fraction-subtraction

 
  Step 1:

Since the denominators are same, we just need to subtract the numerators.

  Step 2:

Reduce the fractions if possible. In our example, it is possible to reduce the fraction.
