##### Match Denominators

Denominator 1 ≠ Denominator 2.
We need matching denominators

Multiply fraction 1 numerator * fraction 2 denominator.
Multiply fraction 2 numerator by the fraction 1 denominator

 Fraction 1 - Fraction 2  = Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 - Numerator 2 * Denominator 1 Denominator 1 * Denominator 2

 Fraction 1 - Fraction 2  = 1 * 5 - 1 * 4 4 * 5

 Fraction 1 - Fraction 2  = 5 - 4 20

 Fraction 1 - Fraction 2  = 1 20

##### Check if simplified

Our fraction is already reduced.
This means our fraction has a Greatest Common Factor (GCF) = 1.
Therefore, we have our answer:

Answer = 1/20

 Answer  = 1 20

1/20

1/20

### What 8 formulas are used for the Fractions and Mixed Numbers Calculator?

a/c + b/c = (a + b)/c
a/c - b/c = (a - b)/c
a/c * b/c = ab/c * c
a/b/c/d = ad/bc
Reciprocal of a/b = b/a
