Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators

Subtracting fractions with like denominators is very similar to adding fractions with like denominators.

You simply need to subtract the numerators, but you may need to simplify the answer, if necessary.

For example:

2/3 - 1/3 = 1/3

or

9/10 - 3/10 = 6/10 (this answer can be simplified to 3/5).

Fractions are simply ways to separate things into equal parts.

Integers

Integers

Integers also do not have a fractional part to them, they do include 0, but they also include negative numbers. Often you will use integers in computer programming to represent numbers that are not fractions or decimals.

For example:

int n = 5;

Whole Numbers

Whole Numbers

Whole numbers are numbers that do not have a fractional part to them, they are not negative and they do include 0.
