Subtracting common (ordinary) fractions, online calculator: subtract fractions with different (unlike) or equal (like) denominators, by the method of building up their denominators the same (up to a common denominator), by expanding the fractions to equivalent forms. Result and the subtraction process explained

How to: Subtracting ordinary (simple, common) math fractions. Steps.

There are two cases regarding the denominators when we subtract ordinary fractions:

A. How to subtract ordinary fractions that have like denominators?

An example of subtracting ordinary fractions that have like denominators, with explanations

B. To subtract fractions with different denominators (unlike denominators), build up the fractions to the same denominator. How is it done?
