A bread piece calls for 3 1/4 cups of flour if you only have 2 1/8 cup. How much more flour is needed?
3 1/4 2 1/8= 13/4  17/9 how does it equal 13/4 can someone show me that part? I thought I knew how to subtract fractions but I don't get it.
3 1/4  2 1/8 = 13/4  17/8 =
26/8  17/8 = 9/8 = 1 1/8
All you do is multiply the whole number by the denominator and then add the numerator: 3 x 4 + 1 = 13. Then put the 13 over 4, and you have changed the mixed number to a improper fraction that can be used in an addition or subtraction problem.
How will you convert the second mixed number in the problem? (Hint: 17/9 is not correct.)
Then, before you can subtract (or add) fractions, you have to convert them so they have common denominators. The obvious common denominator between ?/4 and ?/8 is 8, so that's not a problem; just convert the first fraction so the demoninator is 8.
