Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:2β·/ββ Β Step-by-step explanation:-5β
- (-6β
) + 1β·/ββ
1. Remove parentheses
-5β
- (-6β
) + 1β·/ββ = -5β
+ 6β
+ 1β·/ββ
2. Convert the fractions to their lowest common denominators.
The lowest common denominator of 3, 5, Β and 12 is 60. Thus
-5β
+ 6β
+ 1β·/ββ = -5β΄β°/ββ + 6ΒΉΒ²/ββ+ 1Β³β΅/ββ
3. Add integers and fractions separately
[tex]\begin{array}{lr}-5 & -\dfrac{40}{60} \\\\+6 & \dfrac{12}{60} \\\\+1 & \dfrac{35}{60} \\\\\mathbf{2} & \mathbf{\dfrac{7}{60}} \\\end{array}[/tex]
4. Add the integer and the fraction
2 + β·/ββ = 2β·/ββ
