    step 4 Write the fractions 5/6 and 9/11 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =5/6-9/11
    =(5 x 66)/(6 x 66)-(9 x 66)/(11 x 66)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =55/66-54/66


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/66 x (55/1-54/1)
    =1/66 x (55 - 54)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/66 x 1
    =1/66
    5/6-9/11=1/66
