\(3\frac{1}{2}\)=\(\frac{7}{2}\) as an improper fraction

\(\frac{7}{2}\) = \(\frac{21}{6}\)

\(\frac{21}{6}\)\(\frac{5}{6}\)=\(\frac{26}{6}\)\(\frac{13}{3}\)

So Vincenzo jogged 13/3 miles during the whole week

Now we need to subtract 3/10

\(\frac{13}{3}\)-\(\frac{3}{10}\)\(\frac{130}{30} - \frac{9}{30}\)=\(\frac{121}{30}\)

 

121/30 miles or 4 1/30 miles

 

Let me know if I did anything wrong! smiley
