    Are you unclear on the process of adding/subtracting mixed numbers? Also, are you intended to leave it as a mixed number or no?

    The other option when dealing with mixed numbers is to just subtract the whole parts from each other, and the fractions from each other.

    In this case for example: 44-37 = 7 1/9 - 1/6 = 2/18 - 3/18 = -1/18 7 - 1/18 = 6 17/18
