    yes 1 1/3 - 1/3 you have to change the mixed number to an improper fraction and subtract by the other fraction

    ok so to make the mixed number into an improper fraction you multiply the denominator by the 1 so 3(1)=3 then you add the numerator 3+1=4 1 1/3=4/3 now you can simply subtract 4/3-1/3=3/3 or 1
