What is 6/10 minus 1/5 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 6/10
Fraction B: 1/5

What to be found?
6/10-1/5 = ?
Find what's the difference between 6/10 and 1/5.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 6/10 and 1/5 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 6/10 and 1/5 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 10 and 5 is 10.

step 4 Write the fractions 6/10 and 1/5 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=6/10-1/5
=(6 x 10)/(10 x 10)-(1 x 10)/(5 x 10)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=6/10-2/10

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/10 x (6/1-2/1)
=1/10 x (6 - 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/10 x 4
= 4/10
=2/5
6/10-1/5=2/5

Hence,
6/10 minus 1/5 equals to 2/5 in fraction.

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 6/10
Fraction B: 1/5

What to be found?
6/10-1/5 = ?
Find what's the difference between 6/10 and 1/5.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (6 x 5), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (1 x 10), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (10 x 5) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
= (6 x 5) - (1 x 10)/(10 x 5)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
= (30 - 10)/50
= 20/50
= 2/5
6/10-1/5 = 2/5
Hence,
