Best Answer

85/12

Working:-

Get all your divisors the same so I'd go for 12 since both 3 and 4 can be made to 12 easily.

Then get all your fractions into that divisor.

Remember to do the same to the top and bottom.

and 2/3 becomes (2*4) over (3*4) = 8/12

and 1/4 becomes (1*3) over (4*3) = 3/12

So our sum is now 8 - 11/12

7 and 1/12 is the final answer. (7*12 = 84)
