## missymiss0503 3 years ago Im back can someone work me through this problem 2/5-1/3=

1. BieberLove

is 2/5-1/3 is that with fractions or with dividing?

2. missymiss0503

fraction I know the bottom number is 15 but I just don't know how to get the top numbers

3. BieberLove

|dw:1333592747060:dw| So what u did to the bottom you have to do to the top. Does that make sense?

4. BieberLove

so if u multiplied the bottume by 5x3 to get 15 you ahve to do 2x3 to get the top number witch would be 6 do u understand that?

5. missymiss0503

i get that so its 1/15

6. BieberLove

|dw:1333593798266:dw| U cant ahve 2 different numbers that u multiply the dinominatore by to get a common one... for instance u ahve to ahve one like 8 and 6 they both can be multiblied by the same number~
