EXAMPLE 4.3 Subtraction, Equations, and Applications a Subtract using fraction notation. Slide 6Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. Subtract and, if possible, simplify.

Title 4.3 Subtraction, Equations, and Applications Slide 7Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. To subtract when denominators are different: a) Find the least common multiple of the denominators. That number is the least common denominator, LCD. b) Multiply by 1, using an appropriate notation, n/n, to express each fraction in an equivalent form that contains the LCD. c) Subtract the numerators, keeping the same denominator. d) Simplify, if possible.

Slide 20Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. From anywhere on earth, the moon appears to be a circular disk. At midnight on October 15, 2010 (Eastern Daylight Time), of the moon appeared illuminated. By October 18, 2010, the illuminated portion had increased to How much more of the moon appeared illuminated on October 18 than on October 15?
