Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions. Most of the work involves the denominator. If the denominators of the two fractions are already the same, much of the work is done. Simply subtract the two numerators to get the answer fraction using the same denominator, and then reduce and make a proper fraction.

When adding fractions without a common denominator, it is necessary to find a common denominator before adding the numerators. Find two equivalent fractions by determining the least common multiple of the two denominators and using that as the denominator for both fractions.

In the simplest cases, the two fractions will already have a common denominator. In this case, add the numerators and then reduce the resulting fraction.

Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
