    What is 4/3 minus 5/7 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 4/3
    Fraction B: 5/7

    What to be found?
    4/3-5/7 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 4/3 and 5/7.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 4/3 and 5/7 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 4/3 and 5/7 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions subtraction.

    step 3For unlike fractions subtraction, find the LCM (least common multiple) of both denominators of fractions 4/3 and 5/7:
    The LCM of 3 and 7 is 21.


    step 4 Write the fractions 4/3 and 5/7 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =4/3-5/7
    =(4 x 21)/(3 x 21)-(5 x 21)/(7 x 21)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =28/21-15/21


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/21 x (28/1-15/1)
    =1/21 x (28 - 15)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/21 x 13
    =13/21
    4/3-5/7=13/21

    Hence,
    4/3 minus 5/7 equals to 13/21 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 4/3
    Fraction B: 5/7

    What to be found?
    4/3-5/7 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 4/3 and 5/7.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (4 x 7), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (5 x 3), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (3 x 7) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (4 x 7) - (5 x 3)/(3 x 7)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (28 - 15)/21
    4/3-5/7 = 13/21
    Hence,
    4/3 minus 5/7 = 13/21
