Math is Fun; Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Different Denominators

Both mixed numbers and subtraction skills are on display in this activity, in which students subtract 15 sets of mixed numbers. Students must find equivalent fractions with common denominators before performing the subtraction. Two problems require students to subtract a mixed number from a whole number, and two require students to borrow from the whole number before subtracting.
