    You eat 3 and 1/3 of pies. Your friend eats 1 and 5/8 of pies. How much more pies did you eat?

    Yeah, I know I used her example, but I'll show you the work part.

    3and 1/3 - 1 and 5/8.

    make these into improper fractions.

    10/3 - 13/8.

    Now get them to have same denominators.

    80/24 - 39/24= 41/24

    now turn 41/24 into mixed fraction which is 1 and 17/24
