and

then we cannot the final fraction into decimal.

### Subtract 2.76 from 3.8

= 38/10 − 276/100

= 38/10 × 10/10 − 276/100

= 380/100 − 276/100

= ((380 - 276))/100

= 104/100

= 1.04

### Subtract 9.398 from 34.65

= 3465/100 − 9398/1000

= 3465/100 × 10/10 − 9398/1000

= 34650/1000 − 9398/1000

= ((34650 - 9398))/1000

= 25252/1000

= 25.252
