Example 3 Using Mixed Numbers in Real Life A corn snake that is inches long grows to a length of inches. How much does it grow? BIOLOGY 4 3 14 4 1 27 4 1 4 3 14 = – 4 5 26 4 3 14 – Rename so its fraction part is greater than 4 1 27 4 3 SOLUTION To find the amount of growth, subtract the original length from the current length. 26 4 5 14+ 4 3 =+ – Write mixed numbers in expanded form.
