The last set of worksheets deals with commonly encountered fractions, including percentage values. These are values that students should be able to site reduce when they encounter them. Mastering these reducing problems will make many other fraction problems go much faster.

If the two values being subtracted are mixed fractions, it is often easier to turn them into improper fractions to perform the subtraction. This avoids any kind regrouping or borrowing from the minuend fraction if the numerator in the subtrahend is larger.
