What is 7/10 minus 3/6 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:__Input:__

Fraction A: 7/10

Fraction B: 3/6__What to be found?__

7/10-3/6 = ?

Find what's the difference between 7/10 and 3/6.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 7/10 and 3/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 7/10 and 3/6 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 7/10 and 3/6:

The LCM of 10 and 6 is 30.

step 4 Write the fractions 7/10 and 3/6 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.

=7/10-3/6

=(7 x 30)/(10 x 30)-(3 x 30)/(6 x 30)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:

=21/30-15/30

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:

=1/30 x (21/1-15/1)

=1/30 x (21 - 15)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:

=1/30 x 6

= *6/30*

=1/5

7/10-3/6=1/5

Hence,

7/10 minus 3/6 equals to **1/5** in fraction.

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:__Input:__

Fraction A: 7/10

Fraction B: 3/6__What to be found?__

7/10-3/6 = ?

Find what's the difference between 7/10 and 3/6.

step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (7 x 6), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (3 x 10), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (10 x 6) and rewrite the equation as like the below:

= (7 x 6) - (3 x 10)/(10 x 6)

step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:

= (42 - 30)/60

= 12/60

= 1/5

7/10-3/6 = 1/5

Hence,

7/10 minus 3/6 = **1/5**
