$$6\cfrac{1}{3} - 2\cfrac{7}{8}\\ \cfrac{19}{3}-\cfrac{23}{8}\\ =\cfrac{8\times 19}{24}+\cfrac{3\times 23}{24}$$ Does this make sense? You can simply this further

Yes! $$6\cfrac{1}{3} - 2\cfrac{7}{8}\\ \cfrac{19}{3}-\cfrac{23}{8}\\ =\cfrac{8\times 19}{24}-\cfrac{3\times 23}{24}=\cfrac{152-69}{24}=\cfrac{83}{24}=3 \cfrac{11}{24}$$
