Textbook Problem

Solve the following problems and reduce to lowest terms.

6 5 6 17 18

To determine

To calculate: The value of the expression 6561718, reduction to lowest term.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided expression is 6561718.

Formula used:

Steps for subtracting mixed numbers as:

Step 1: If the mixed numbers fractions have the same denominator, subtract the fractions and reduce to lowest terms.

Step 2: If the fractions of the mixed numbers do not have the same denominator, raise them to the denominator of the Least Common Denominator and subtract.

Step 3: Subtract the whole numbers.

Step 4: Add the difference of the whole numbers and the difference of the fractions.

Calculation:

Consider the provided expression,

6561718

The fractions do not have the same denominator 6,18; thus, raise them to the denominator of the Least Common Denominator 18,

656=65×36×3=61518

The operation 6561718 becomes,

6561718=615181718

Here, subtraction of 1718 from 1518 is not possible; thus, borrow one whole unit, 1818 from the whole number 6 to make it 5
