Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish = 334212=3×4+342×2+12=15452

Now, the LCM of the denominator of the fractions 154 and 52 i.e. the LCM of 4 and 2 is 4.

Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish =15×14×15×22×2=154104
Difference between the weight of Neetu's fish and Narendra's fish =154104=15104=54

We can express an improper fraction as a mixed fraction by dividing the numerator by denominator to obtain the quotient and the remainder.

Then the mixed fraction will be written as QuotientRemainderDivisor.
