**2 1/3 - 2/3**

**Answer:**

To make things easier, you’d have to make the mixed number “2 1/2” into an improper fraction (a fraction with the bigger number on top EX: 4/2).

So, 2 1/3 would turn into 7/3.

*if you don’t know how to make mixed numbers into improper fractions, all you do is multiply the denominator by the whole number, then add the numerator to the product. So, for example, in 2 1/3, you multiply 2 and 3, getting 6. And then you add the numerator; so, 6 + 1 is 7. then you just put that number you got over the same denominator in the mixed number. So 2 1/3 becomes 7/3.*

Then you just subtract the fractions as you normally would.

7/3 - 4/3 = 3/3 or 1
