What is 8/5 minus 1/6 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 8/5
Fraction B: 1/6

What to be found?
8/5-1/6 = ?
Find what's the difference between 8/5 and 1/6.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 8/5 and 1/6 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 8/5 and 1/6 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 5 and 6 is 30.

step 4 Write the fractions 8/5 and 1/6 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=8/5-1/6
=(8 x 30)/(5 x 30)-(1 x 30)/(6 x 30)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=48/30-5/30

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/30 x (48/1-5/1)
=1/30 x (48 - 5)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/30 x 43
=43/30
8/5-1/6=43/30

Hence,
8/5 minus 1/6 equals to 43/30 in fraction.
