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

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

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

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

The LCM of 10 and 3 is 30.

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

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

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

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

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