##### Convert the mixed number

You entered the mixed number 6&1/9 for Fraction 2.
We need to convert this to an improper fraction.

##### The formula for this is:

 Fraction  = Denominator x Whole Number + Numerator Denominator

##### Evaluate using 18

The denominator = 9

The whole number = 6

The numerator = 1

##### Evaluate:

 Fraction  = (9 x 6) + 1 9

 Fraction  = 54 + 1 9

 Fraction  = 55 9

##### We want to subtract the following 2 fractions:

 55 9
 -
 55 9

Since our denominators for Fraction 1 and Fraction 2 are the same, we can just subtract as is.

 Fraction 1 + Fraction 2  = 55 - 55 9

 Fraction 1 + Fraction 2  = 0 9

##### Check if simplified

This means our fraction has a Greatest Common Factor (GCF) = 1.

0/9

0/9
