**SO I have 3/4 and I want to know the difference between negative 3/8**

Hi Louis;

JASON IS CORRECT. I AM HEREWITH REVISING. YOU ARE REQUESTING MINUS THE NEGATIVE.

There are two ways of approaching this problem.

FIRST...

Let's convert both numbers into decimals.

3/4=0.750

3/8=0.375

0.750

--0.375

This is

0.750

+0.375

1.125

SECOND...

Let's convert 3/4 into ?/8...

(3/4)(x/x)

If we multiply (4)(2) we produce 8.

Therefore...

(3/4)(2/2)=6/8

The equation is now...

(6/8)-(-3/8)

(6/8)+(3/8)=9/8 or 1 1/8
