Explanation:

When we subtract mixed numbers we subtract the whole numbers by the whole numbers and the fractions by the fractions.

### Example Question #2 : Show Fractional Data On A Line Plot And Solve Problems By Using Line Plots : Ccss.Math.Content.4.Md.B.4

Use the line plot to answer the question.

Three students spend  hours reading and five students spend  hours reading. What is the difference in time spent reading?

Explanation:

When we subtract mixed numbers we subtract the whole numbers by the whole numbers and the fractions by the fractions.

in order to subtract fractions we need to make common denominators.
