When adding mixed numbers, it's important to remember to add the wholes separately, make the denominators the same, and only add the numerators.
Certainly! When subtracting mixed numbers with unlike denominators, you can subtract the whole numbers separately and make the denominators the same. This method is useful when the fractional part of the first mixed number is greater than that of the second mixed number.
You should convert mixed numbers into fractions before subtracting them when the fractional part of the first mixed number is smaller than that of the second mixed number. This ensures that you have equal denominators for accurate subtraction.
