Subtract Fractions- 5th Grade Math
In the previous grade, students subtract fractions with like denominators. In Subtract Fractions Worksheet, they subtract two fractions with unlike denominators. They do so by using their previous knowledge of equivalence of fractions to replace the fractions by those with like denominators. For example, 2/3 - 1/6 = 4/6 - 1/6 = 3/6.
