Question | Answer |
---|---|

Find the difference in two ways. Use number bonds to decompose the total. 1 and 2/5 - 4/5 = ___ | 1 and 2/5 = 5/5 and 2/5 5/5 + 2/5 = 7/5 7/5 - 4/5 = 3/5 5/5 - 4/5 = 1/5 1/5 + 2/5 = 3/5 |

Find the difference in two ways. Use number bonds to decompose the total. 1 and 3/6 - 4/6 | 1 and 3/6 - 4/6 1 and 3/6 = 6/6 and 3/6 6/6 + 3/6 = 9/6 9/6 - 4/6 = 5/6 6/6 - 4/6 = 2/6 2/6 + 3/6 = 5/6 |

Find the difference in two ways. Use number bonds to decompose the total. 1 and 6/8 - 7/8 | 1 and 6/8 - 7/8 1 and 6/8 = 8/8 and 6/8 8/8 + 6/8 = 14/8 14/8 - 7/8 = 7/8 8/8 - 7/8 = 1/8 1/8 + 6/8 = 7/8 |

Find the difference in two ways. Use number bonds to decompose the total. 1 and 1/10 - 7/10 | 1 and 1/10 - 7/10 1 and 1/10 = 10/10 and 1/10 10/10 + 1/10 = 11/10 11/10 - 7/10 = 4/10 10/10 - 7/10 = 3/10 3/10 + 1/10 = 4/10 |

Find the difference in two ways. Use number bonds to decompose the total. 1 and 3/12 - 6/12 | 1 and 3/12 - 6/12 1 and 3/12 = 12/12 and 3/12 12/12 + 3/12 = 15/12 15/12 - 6/12 = 9/12 12/12 - 6/12 = 6/12 6/12 + 3/12 = 9/12 |

Explain how you can subtract a fraction from a number between 1 and 2, using the method subtract from one whole. | First make the whole number into an equivalent fraction with the same denominator as the rest of my problem. Then, subtract the fraction from one whole. Next take the difference, and add that to the fraction remaining after the whole number. |
