# Subtracting Fractions - Pagbabawas ng Hating-Bilang

### There are 3 simple steps to subtract fractions. (Mayroon tatlong hakbang sa pagbabawas ng hating-bilang)

### 1. Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same.

*Siguraduhin na ang mga numerong nasa ibaba (denominators) ay magkatulad.*

2. Subtract the top numbers (the numerators). Put the answer over the same denominator.

*Ibawas ang mga numerong nasa itaas (numerators). Ilagay ang sagot sa ibabaw ng magkatulad na denominator.*

3. Simplify the fraction.

*Gawing simple ang hating-bilang.*

## Example 1:

3 | – | 1 |

6 | 6 |

**Step 1**. The bottom numbers are already the same. Go straight to step 2.

**Step 2**. Subtract the top numbers and put the answer over the same denominator:

3 | – | 1 | = | 3 – 1 | = | 2 |

6 | 6 | 6 | 6 |

**Step 3**. Simplify the fraction:

2 | = | 1 |

6 | 3 |
