You have to change both fractions to have the same denominator. Their least common denominator for these two is 12.2/3 changes by multiplying the top and bottom number by 4 which makes the denominator change to 12 and you get....8/121/4 changes by multiplying the top and bottom number by 3 which makes the denominator change to 12 and you get...3/12Then all you have to do is subtract both and you get.....-1 7/12
