you have to subtract is all

you can probably compute \[37-21\tfrac{1}{4}\] in your head

ok lets go slow

you have $37 you spend $21.25 \[37-21=16\] but \[1-\frac{1}{4}=\frac{3}{4}\] so you have only \[\$15.75\] left in terms of money with fractions you have \[15\tfrac{3}{4}\]

  • anonymous
now you have to compute \[15\tfrac{3}{4}\div1\tfrac{3}{4}\]
