What is 5/6 minus 1/9 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 5/6
Fraction B: 1/9

What to be found?
5/6-1/9 = ?
Find what's the difference between 5/6 and 1/9.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 5/6 and 1/9 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 5/6 and 1/9 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 6 and 9 is 18.

step 4 Write the fractions 5/6 and 1/9 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=5/6-1/9
=(5 x 18)/(6 x 18)-(1 x 18)/(9 x 18)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=15/18-2/18

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/18 x (15/1-2/1)
=1/18 x (15 - 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/18 x 13
=13/18
5/6-1/9=13/18

Hence,
5/6 minus 1/9 equals to 13/18 in fraction.

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 5/6
Fraction B: 1/9

What to be found?
5/6-1/9 = ?
Find what's the difference between 5/6 and 1/9.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (5 x 9), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (1 x 6), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (6 x 9) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
= (5 x 9) - (1 x 6)/(6 x 9)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
= (45 - 6)/54
= 39/54
= 13/18
