What is 1/9 minus 2/3 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 1/9
Fraction B: 2/3

What to be found?
1/9-2/3 = ?
Find what's the difference between 1/9 and 2/3.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/9 and 2/3 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/9 and 2/3 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 9 and 3 is 9.

step 4 Write the fractions 1/9 and 2/3 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=1/9-2/3
=(1 x 9)/(9 x 9)-(2 x 9)/(3 x 9)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=1/9-6/9

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/9 x (1/1-6/1)
=1/9 x (1 - 6)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/9 x -5
=-5/9
1/9-2/3=-5/9

Hence,
1/9 minus 2/3 equals to -5/9 in fraction.

Input:
Fraction A: 1/9
Fraction B: 2/3

What to be found?
1/9-2/3 = ?
Find what's the difference between 1/9 and 2/3.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (1 x 3), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 9), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (9 x 3) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
= (1 x 3) - (2 x 9)/(9 x 3)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
= (3 - 18)/27
= -15/27
= -5/9
1/9-2/3 = -5/9
Hence,
1/9 minus 2/3 = -5/9
