# Word Problems Fractions (subtraction) (different denominator, no mixed numbers)

**Description: **This packet helps students practice solving word problems that require subtraction of fractions that have different denominators. Each page contains 6 problems. Each page also has a speed and accuracy guide to help students see how fast and how accurately they should be doing these problems. After doing all 12 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.
