If you had 2 1/5 subtract 1 1/5 what would your answer be

I know this answer and if you are not a elementary student don't answer this is from a fellow teacher Mrs.May

  • Math -

    May I say 2 - 1 + 1/5 - 1/5

  • Math -

    You could also change your mixed fractions to improper and you would have 11/5 - 6/5 which is equal to 5/5 which is equal to 1 : )

  • Math -

    or, you could do it using decimals ....

    2 1/5 subtract 1 1/5
    = 2.2 - 1.2
    = 1

  • Math -

    Or you could lay it out on a number line and notice that the 1/5 to 1/5 goes away :)

  • Math -

    21/5 -1 1/5
    11/5-6/5
    11-6/5
    5/5
    =1
