    Problem and Workout - LCM Method:
    What is 3/4 minus 2/11 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 3/4
    Fraction B: 2/11

    What to be found?
    3/4-2/11 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 3/4 and 2/11.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 3/4 and 2/11 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 3/4 and 2/11 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

    step 3For unlike fractions subtraction, find the LCM (least common multiple) of both denominators of fractions 3/4 and 2/11:
    The LCM of 4 and 11 is 44.


    step 4 Write the fractions 3/4 and 2/11 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =3/4-2/11
    =(3 x 44)/(4 x 44)-(2 x 44)/(11 x 44)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =33/44-8/44


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/44 x (33/1-8/1)
    =1/44 x (33 - 8)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/44 x 25
    =25/44
    3/4-2/11=25/44

    Hence,
    3/4 minus 2/11 equals to 25/44 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 3/4
    Fraction B: 2/11

    What to be found?
    3/4-2/11 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 3/4 and 2/11.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (3 x 11), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 4), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (4 x 11) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (3 x 11) - (2 x 4)/(4 x 11)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (33 - 8)/44
    3/4-2/11 = 25/44
    Hence,
    3/4 minus 2/11 = 25/44
