    The LCD is 24, you want to rewrite the fractions in terms of the LCD here: \[6\frac{5}{8}=6\frac{15}{24}\] 8*3=24, 5*3=15 \[\frac{1}{6}=\frac{4}{24}\] 6*4=24 1*4=4 Now you can subtract them easily

    \[6\frac{15}{24}-\frac{4}{24}=6\frac{15-4}{24}\]

    If you want to convert \[6\frac{5}{8}\] to an improper fraction, you'd multiply the denominator times the whole number and add the numerator, like this: \[6\frac{5}{8}=\frac{8*6+5}{8}=\frac{53}{5}\]

    \[\frac{53}{8}\], not 53/5**********
