What is 2/3 minus 3/10 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 2/3
Fraction B: 3/10

What to be found?
2/3-3/10 = ?
Find what's the difference between 2/3 and 3/10.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 2/3 and 3/10 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 2/3 and 3/10 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 3 and 10 is 30.

step 4 Write the fractions 2/3 and 3/10 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=2/3-3/10
=(2 x 30)/(3 x 30)-(3 x 30)/(10 x 30)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=20/30-9/30

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/30 x (20/1-9/1)
=1/30 x (20 - 9)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/30 x 11
=11/30
2/3-3/10=11/30

Hence,
2/3 minus 3/10 equals to 11/30 in fraction.
