## Subtract Mixed Numbers with Regrouping

You can **subtract mixed numbers** in many different ways. One of them is the regrouping method. This is a special method for mixed numbers. Tn this article, I will show you the procedures forÂ subtracting mixed numbers with regrouping worksheets.

You can regroup the mixed numbers for subtraction as given below: Suppose, you are going to subtract 4 Â¾ and 3 Â¼. Then, first, you need to subtract Â¼ from Â¾.

You will find the result 2/4. Then subtract the whole numbers and the answer will be 1. Finally, you will get the result 1 2/4 or, 1 Â½. But if you get two mixed fractions like 4 Â¼ and 3 Â¾.

Like- the fraction in the upper place is smaller than the fraction in the lower number. Now you have to regroup the whole numbers and fractions. First, take a whole 1 from the 4.

The 4 will become 3 now as you have taken 1 from 4. You can now write the 1 as 4/4. Then sum it up with the Â¼. As a result, you will get 5/4 instead of Â¼. Now subtract the 3/4 from 5/4.

You will get the result on 2/4. Meanwhile, subtract the whole numbers. The upper number 4 has become 3 now and the lower number is 3. So, subtract 3 from 3. You will get the answer 0. So the final result is 2/4 or Â½. You can find many problems like these is subtracting mixed numbers with regrouping worksheetsÂ

## 4 Activities of Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Regrouping

These approaches are quite successful. These methods should assist your young champ in learning the **basics of mathematical operation** learning and laying a solid foundation. Follow the step-by-step procedures for subtracting mixed numbers with regrouping worksheet activities given below.

## Subtract Mixed Numbers with Regrouping Using Manipulatives

Letâ€™s imagine we are trying to deduct 3 from 1 1/3. It appears challenging. I must regroup and take a fraction from the three because I canâ€™t remove 1/3 from 0.

- Lay up the number that you will be subtracting from in front of you to start. The hexagon will always be considered to be one whole. Iâ€™ll set up three hexagons in front of me since Iâ€™m subtracting from three.
- I want to subtract 1/3 first, but I only have three wholes, thus I am unable to do so. Your students should be aware that the rhombus is equivalent to 1/3 of a hexagon if they have ever played with pattern blocks. So we are going to replace a hexagon with three rhombuses.
- I can finally subtract. I take one rhombus or one-third. Then I remove 1 entire, which is 1 hexagon.
- Calculating the fraction that the extra pattern blocks represent is all that has to be done. I have two rhombuses, giving me two-thirds, and one hexagon, giving me one. 1 2/3 is the result of 3 â€“ 1 1/3.

## A New Way to Subtract Mixed Numbers with Regrouping

- In this way, first, all the fractions will be changed into improper fractions. For example, if you are given the fractions 3 Â¾ and 2 Â¼. Then, you need to change the mixed numbers to improper fractions by multiplying the denominator with the whole number and then sum up the result with the numerator. For 3 Â¾, you can change the numerator to 3Ã—4+3 =15. So the fraction will be 15/4.
- After changing all the mixed numbers into improper fractions, you will follow the simple fraction subtracting rules.
- Finally, you will get the result.

## Subtract a Whole Number from a Mixed Number with Regrouping

- First, write down the problem in your notebook.
- You can use both the regrouping process or the process shown in the former method.
- You will need to change the mixed number if you want to follow the rule mentioned in the former method. Follow any one of the rules.
- Subtract the whole number from the fraction after that.
- You will get the final result then.
