Subtract Same Denominators

Subtract Same Denominators Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a mathematics exercise sheet that focuses on the subtraction of fractions with the same denominators. It consists of several fraction subtraction problems where each pair of fractions has an identical denominator, simplifying the subtraction process. Students are expected to subtract the numerators directly and write the answer in the space provided next to each problem.

The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students the basic principle of subtracting fractions when the denominators are the same, which is a simpler case of fraction subtraction. It emphasizes that when the denominators are identical, the subtraction operation only involves the numerators, while the common denominator remains unchanged. This exercise also helps to reinforce the concept of fraction simplification if needed. The self-assessment portion at the bottom allows students to reflect on their level of confidence and understanding after completing the exercise.
