What is 6/7 minus 2/6 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 6/7
Fraction B: 2/6

What to be found?
6/7-2/6 = ?
Find what's the difference between 6/7 and 2/6.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 6/7 and 2/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 6/7 and 2/6 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 7 and 6 is 42.

step 4 Write the fractions 6/7 and 2/6 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=6/7-2/6
=(6 x 42)/(7 x 42)-(2 x 42)/(6 x 42)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=36/42-14/42

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/42 x (36/1-14/1)
=1/42 x (36 - 14)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/42 x 22
= 22/42
=11/21
6/7-2/6=11/21

Hence,
6/7 minus 2/6 equals to 11/21 in fraction.

Input:
Fraction A: 6/7
Fraction B: 2/6

What to be found?
6/7-2/6 = ?
Find what's the difference between 6/7 and 2/6.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (6 x 6), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (2 x 7), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (7 x 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
= (6 x 6) - (2 x 7)/(7 x 6)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
= (36 - 14)/42
= 22/42
= 11/21
6/7-2/6 = 11/21
