Subtracting 3 Fractions

Subtracting 3 Fractions Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed for the practice of subtracting fractions with the same denominators. It contains a set of problems where students must perform subtraction operations on fractions that share a common denominator. Some problems involve the subtraction of two fractions, while at least one involves subtracting three fractions, all with the same denominator.

The worksheet is teaching students how to handle the subtraction of multiple fractions that have the same denominator. It reinforces the concept that with a common denominator, only the numerators need to be subtracted, which is a foundational skill in fraction arithmetic. The inclusion of a problem with three fractions introduces additional complexity, guiding students on how to extend the operation beyond two terms. Lastly, the self-assessment section encourages students to reflect on their understanding and confidence with the material.
