## Subtracting Fractions

• 0:00 - 0:00
• 0:00 - 0:03
• 0:03 - 0:06
have 8/18 minus 5/18.
• 0:06 - 0:08
So subtracting fractions
is very
• 0:08 - 0:10
• 0:10 - 0:13
If we have the same denominator,
the denominator
• 0:13 - 0:14
in the difference is going
to be the same as the
• 0:14 - 0:16
denominators in the two
numbers that we're
• 0:16 - 0:19
subtracting, so it's
going to be 18.
• 0:19 - 0:21
And our numerator is going to be
the difference between the
• 0:21 - 0:21
numerators.
• 0:21 - 0:27
So in this case, it is 8 minus
5, and this will be equal to 3
• 0:27 - 0:31
over 18, which is the answer,
but it's not completely
• 0:31 - 0:35
simplified, because both 3 and
18 are divisible by 3.
• 0:35 - 0:37
So let's divide them
both by 3.
• 0:37 - 0:43
So you divide 3 by 3, you divide
18 by 3, and you get 3
• 0:43 - 0:44
divided by 3 is 1.
• 0:44 - 0:49
18 divided by 3 is 6,
so you get 1/6.
• 0:49 - 0:53
And just to see this visually,
let me draw 18 parts.
• 0:53 - 0:56
Let me draw 18 parts here.
• 0:56 - 0:58
So it might be a little bit
of a messy drawing.
• 0:58 - 1:00
I'll try the best I can.
• 1:00 - 1:03
So let me draw six in
this direction.
• 1:03 - 1:07
So that is three right there.
• 1:07 - 1:10
We have another three,
so that's six parts.
• 1:10 - 1:13
And then let me split this
into three columns.
• 1:13 - 1:14
So there we go.
• 1:14 - 1:15
We have 18 parts.
• 1:15 - 1:24
Now 8/18 is equal to one,
two, three, four,
• 1:24 - 1:27
five, six, seven, eight.
• 1:27 - 1:29
That's 8/18.
• 1:29 - 1:33
And now we want to subtract five
of the eighteenths, so we
• 1:33 - 1:38
subtract one, two, three,
four, five.
• 1:38 - 1:40
Now, what do we have
left over?
• 1:40 - 1:43
Well, we have three of the
eighteenths left over, so you
• 1:43 - 1:45
have that right there.
• 1:45 - 1:48
You have three of the
eighteenths left over.
• 1:48 - 1:52
Now, if you turn three of the
eighteenths into one piece,
• 1:52 - 1:54
how many of those bigger
pieces do you have?
• 1:54 - 1:56
This is one of those
big pieces.
• 1:56 - 1:58
Now, where are the other ones?
• 1:58 - 2:01
Well, this is another big
piece right here.
• 2:01 - 2:04
This is another big piece
right here, another one,
• 2:04 - 2:05
another one, and another one.
• 2:05 - 2:08
If you had 18 pieces and you
merged three of the pieces
• 2:08 - 2:12
into one, then you actually end
up with only six pieces.
• 2:12 - 2:14
You end up with six pieces.
• 2:14 - 2:18
Hopefully, you see that each row
is one of the pieces now,
• 2:18 - 2:22
and the blue is exactly one
of the six, so 3/18
• 2:22 - 2:24
is the same as 1/6.
• 2:24 - 2:25
