Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok back to the fraction problem, whats a number that both 5 and 8 will go into?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These two fractions do not have the same denominators (lower numbers), so we must first find a common denominator of the two fractions, before subtracting them. For the denominators here, the 8 and 5, a common denominator for both is 40. search how to subtract fractions on google, and click on subtract two fractionsWeb math, there you can type your problem, and it will give you step by step on how to do it.
