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.

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,
