Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.

If the answer keys do not provide sufficient help to illustrate the concepts needed for dividing fractions, please make use of the fraction calculator. It will break down the steps in more detail and help you master fraction division in no time!

If the two values being subtracted are mixed fractions, it is often easier to turn them into improper fractions to perform the subtraction. This avoids any kind regrouping or borrowing from the minuend fraction if the numerator in the subtrahend is larger.

If the answers numerator is greater than the denominator, then the answer is an improper fraction. This fraction should be turned into a proper fraction by taking wholes out of the numerator until the numerator is less than the denominator.
