    (1/64)-5/6 = 32

    To subtract fractions they must have common denominators, so find the least common multiple of 64 and 6 (the denominators of the fractions).

    The least common multiple of the two fractions’ denominators is 192. To get 64 to 192, you would multiply 64 by 3 times. If you’re multiplying 64 by 3, you also multiply the numerator by 3.

    1/64 * 3/3 = 3/192

    Now to get 6 to 192, you would multiply 6 by 32. If you’re multiplying 6 by 32 then you will also multiply the numerator (5) by 32.

    5/6 * 32/32 = 160/192

    Subtract the fractions now that they have common denominators. You’ll only need to subtract the numerators.

    3/192-160/192 = -157/192

    You cannot simplify this any farther, so that will be your true answer. -157/192 is NOT equal to 32, so this means the answer is false.

    Answer is:

    false
