SUBTRACT FRACTIONS Question 1
A fraction is written as: numerator denominator
1 - 1 = 22 Step 1: Since each fraction has the same denominator 2, we can write the following: 1 - 1 2 Step 2: Now, we can subtract the 2 numbers in the numerator of our new fraction and we get the following: 0 2 Step 3: Since thenumerator is 0 and the denominator is 2 we get: 0 When 0 is divided by any number(except 0), the result is always 0. Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have 0 because the difference of one half and one halfis the number 0. 1 - 1 = 0 22
