Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

Order of Operation - Solve the fractions within the parentheses first.

1. You cannot add or subtract the fraction because the denominators are different, therefore find the Least Common Multiple (LCM).

Common multiples for 6 are: 6, **12**, 18...

Common multiples for 4 are: 4, 8, **12**, 16...

Common multiples for 3 are: 3, 6, 9,**12**,15...

The LCM is **12** as shown above.

2.For 5/6 divide **12** by 6 to get 2, then multiply 2 by 5 to get
**10** = 10/12

For -3/4 divide **12** by 4 to get 3, then multiply 3 by 3 to get
**9** = -9/12

For 2/3 divide **12** by 3 to get 4, then multiply 4 by 2 to get
**8** = 8/12

3. Now subtract the fractions to get 9/12. Reduce by dividing both 9 and 12 by 3 the LCF.

9 divided by 3 = 3

12 divided by 3 = 4

The reduced fraction is 3/4.

4. Now multiply 1/3 by 3/4 = **1/4 Answer.**
