7/8 minus 2/3 is 5/24

You have to get the same common denominator, 9x2 is 18, so 7x2 is 14. 14/18-5/18 is 9/18. 9/9 is 1 and 18/9 is 2, so you are left with 1/2

2 minus -9 is 11.

20 minus 17 minus 3 minus 2 equals -2

(7/9)-(5/18)(14/18)-(5/18)(14-5)/189/181/2 ◄Rule: (a/b)-(c/d) = (ad-bc)/(bd)(126-45)/16281 / 1621 / 2 ■
