The answer is 4 7/9. Since you cannot subtract the numerators, you have to take 1 from the whole number, so 9 turns into 8 and you add the denominator to the numerator to make the equation 8 15/9 - 4 8/9 which is 4 7/9 :).

You already have a common denominator, so you should convert to improper fractions to subtract them easier. These would be 87/9-44/9, and then you subtract the numerators and leave the denominator. 87-44=43, so your answer is 43/9, or 4 7/9, or 4.77777...
