Instructions for Subtracting Fractions Worksheets

Adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators involves operations with the numerator. For both operations, simply add or subtract the numerator to get the corresponding numerator in the answer fraction and use the same denominator, then reduce if necessary. These worksheets introduce subtracting fractions with like denominators, and later series of worksheets progress to unlike denominators, mixed numbers and other more complex problems.
