A fraction is a mathematical expression to represent parts of a whole. It contains two numbers: a numerator that represents some of the parts of a whole, and a denominator that tells about the total number of parts.
We encounter fractions quite often in our day to day lives, so children should learn to read and understand them. These fractions also help in learning mathematical concepts like algebra. There are certain rules that need to be followed while adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions, and children should often practice solving fractions to learn and memorise these rules. Here is a worksheet on subtracting mixed fractions with unlike denominators.
