What is 2/5 minus 1/11 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 2/5
Fraction B: 1/11

What to be found?
2/5-1/11 = ?
Find what's the difference between 2/5 and 1/11.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 2/5 and 1/11 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 2/5 and 1/11 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 5 and 11 is 55.

step 4 Write the fractions 2/5 and 1/11 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=2/5-1/11
=(2 x 55)/(5 x 55)-(1 x 55)/(11 x 55)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=22/55-5/55

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/55 x (22/1-5/1)
=1/55 x (22 - 5)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/55 x 17
=17/55
2/5-1/11=17/55

Hence,
2/5 minus 1/11 equals to 17/55 in fraction.
