Subtracting Fractions With Unlike Denominators


The following videos show how to solve subtraction problems involving fractions with unlike denominators.

If you have questions, use the gray math tutoring chat box on this webpage.  It's ideal for word problems. Type (or copy and paste) the problem you're struggling with, and remind me that the topic is subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.

What if it says "Leave a message," not "Chat with us"?

If the chat box says "Leave a message," that means I'm offline.  Click on it and send me the text of the problem you need help with.  Please mention what grade and math class you're in (for example, 6th grade math). 

It will ask you for your name and e-mail address.  I value your privacy and will not share or sell your e-mail address.

Within 24 hours, I'll e-mail you the link to a video showing you how to solve the problem.

Is this a good resource for taking tests?

No, Can Do Math is not appropriate for quizzes, tests, or exams.  That would be cheating.  We prepare for them by studying and practicing.  Use this website for homework, practice problems, or sample problems.




Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators is pretty fun once you get the hang of it.  I hope this page helps you!
