Today we are practicing subtracting fractions with Razzi! This video contains examples to help you further practice and grow confident in this topic.

Transcript Subtracting Fractions on a Number Line — Let's Practice!

Razzi says get these items ready, because today we're going to practice subtracting fractions on a number line. Using a number line, solve six eighths minus three eighths. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Both denominators are eight, so divide the number line into eight equal parts. Now locate six eighths, which is here. Count back the numerator of the second fraction, which is three. Did you also get three eighths? Let's tackle the next problem! Using a number line, solve four fourths minus three fourths. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Both denominators are four, so divide the number line into four equal parts. One whole is the same as four fourths, so start here. Count back the numerator of the second fraction, which is three. Did you also get one fourth? Let's tackle the final problem! Using a number line, solve two thirds minus two thirds. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Both denominators are three, so divide the number line into three equal parts. Now locate two thirds, which is here. Count back the numerator of the second fraction, which is two. We land on zero, so we say the answer is zero. Did you also get zero? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
