\(2\frac{5}{8}-1\frac{1}{4}\)

First, make them into improper fractions.

\(\frac{21}{8}-\frac{5}{4}\)

The least common denominator is 32.

\(4(\frac{21}{8})-8(\frac{5}{4})\)

\(\frac{84}{8}-\frac{40}{4}\)

Simplify.

\(\frac{21}{2}-10\)

\(\frac{21}{2}=10\frac{1}{2}\)

\(10\frac{1}{2}-10=\frac{1}{2}\)

So your answer is 1/2 or 0.5.
