    Before subtracting you should equal the denominator of both fractions.. To do this take the LCM of the denominator..

    In the first one the LCM is 6.. So in the first fraction you divide 6 by 3 and multiply the numerator. So you get it like this..\[\frac{10}{6}-\frac{5}{6}\]Likewise do the others..
