step by step to see if my answer your answer

2 Answer

  • make them improper fractions:
    14 1/4 would be 57/4
    10 3/7 would be 73/7
    Make them the same common denominator:
    Times 57/4 by 7/7 =399/28
    Times 73/7 by 4/4 =292/28
    Now subtract them:
    107/28 
    Now Simplify:
    107/28= (3*28+23)/28=3+23/28= 3 23/28
    The Answer:
    3 23/28

  • [tex]14 \frac{1}{4}= \frac{14\cdot4+1}{4}= \frac{57}{4} [/tex]

    [tex]10 \frac{3}{7}= \frac{10\cdot7+3}{3}= \frac{73}{7} [/tex]

    [tex]\hbox {So, you have now } \frac{57}{4}-\frac{73}{7}=\frac{57\cdot7}{4\cdot7}-\frac{73\cdot4}{7\cdot4}= \frac{399}{28}-\frac{292}{28}=\boxed {\frac{107}{28} } [/tex][tex]=\boxed { 3\frac{23}{28} }[/tex]
