What is 8/5 minus 2/10 as a fraction?

step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input:
Fraction A: 8/5
Fraction B: 2/10

What to be found?
8/5-2/10 = ?
Find what's the difference between 8/5 and 2/10.

step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 8/5 and 2/10 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 8/5 and 2/10 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

The LCM of 5 and 10 is 10.

step 4 Write the fractions 8/5 and 2/10 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
=8/5-2/10
=(8 x 10)/(5 x 10)-(2 x 10)/(10 x 10)

step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
=16/10-2/10

step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
=1/10 x (16/1-2/1)
=1/10 x (16 - 2)

step 7Simplify the above expression further:
=1/10 x 14
= 14/10
=7/5
8/5-2/10=7/5
