ive tryed to figer it out but cant get the awnser to it

Since the denominators (the numbers at the bottom) are the same (they are both 3's) all you have to do is subtract the top numbers and leave the bottom the same:

so for the top you get: 1-5 = -4

and the bottom stays the same:3

final answer: -4/3

## Comments

Sorry the formating for the end didn't work out as I had hoped. I will try again here

Whole: (1/3) - (5/3)

Top: 1 - 5 = -4

Bottom: stays a 3

Back together: -4/3

Mixed number: -1 1/3
