# Solve the following:

(i) 7/24 - 17/36

(ii) 5/63 - (- 6/21)

(iii) -6/13 - (-7/15)

(iv) -3/8 - 7/11

(v) - \(2{\Large\frac{1}{9}}\) - 6

**Solution:**

To solve these questions, take the L.C.M of denominator or convert them into like fractions.

(i) 7/24 - 17/36

Taking L.C.M of 24 and 36 , we get 72

7/24 - 17/36 = (7 × 3)/(24 × 3) - (17 × 2)/(36 × 2)

= 21/72 - 34/72 = (21 - 34)/ 72

= - 13/72

(ii) 5/63 - (- 6/21 )

Taking L.C.M of 63 and 21, we get 63

5/63 - (- 6/21) = (5 × 1)/(63 × 1) + (6 × 3)/(21 × 3)

= 5/63 + 18/63

= (5 + 18)/63

= 23/63

(iii) - 6/13 - (- 7/15)

Taking L.C.M of 13 and 15, we get 195

- 6/13 - (- 7/15) = (- 6 × 15)/(13 × 15) + (7 × 13)/(15 × 13)

= - 90/195 + 91/195

= (-90 + 91)/195

= 1/195

(iv) - 3/8 - 7/11

Taking L.C.M of 8 and 11, we get 88

-3/8 - 7/11 = (- 3 × 11)/(8 × 11) - (7 × 8)/(11 × 8)

= - 33/88 - 56/88

= (-33 - 56)/88

= - 89/88

(v) - \(2{\Large\frac{1}{9}}\) - 6

- \(2{\Large\frac{1}{9}}\) - 6 = - 19/9 - 6/1

Taking L.C.M of 9 and 1, we get 9

-19/9 - 6/1 = -19/(9 × 1) - (6 × 9)/(1 × 9)

= -19/9 - 54/9 = (-19 - 54)/9

= - 73/9
