@satellite73 then why do you turn 5 1/6 into a improper fraction if its already proper?
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
Because you can not add or subtract fractions when they are mixed fractions.
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
and when you want to add/subtract them you need to have the same denominator for both fractions.
