Sue is going to the park.

It is 3 3/5 miles from her house.
Sue takes her scooter, but it breaks down 2/3 of the way to the park.
How far is Sue from her house?

Answer

You would subtract because the words "breaks down" is the same thing.
First you would start off with the bottom numbers which is known as the denominator so since 3 cannot go into 5 you would multiply them together and get the number 15.
Then multiply 3 times 3=9 and 2 times 5=10 so now you have 9/15 & 10/15 subtract the top you get 1 so 1/15 add the whole number to your answer and here is what i 3 frac 1 15 I hope this helped
