    What is 9/7 minus 3/4 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 9/7
    Fraction B: 3/4

    What to be found?
    9/7-3/4 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 9/7 and 3/4.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 9/7 and 3/4 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction subtraction. Since the denominators of given fractions 9/7 and 3/4 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 9/7 and 3/4:
    The LCM of 7 and 4 is 28.


    step 4 Write the fractions 9/7 and 3/4 in the subtraction expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =9/7-3/4
    =(9 x 28)/(7 x 28)-(3 x 28)/(4 x 28)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =36/28-21/28


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/28 x (36/1-21/1)
    =1/28 x (36 - 21)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/28 x 15
    =15/28
    9/7-3/4=15/28

    Hence,
    9/7 minus 3/4 equals to 15/28 in fraction.

    Fraction A: 9/7
    Fraction B: 3/4

    What to be found?
    9/7-3/4 = ?
    Find what's the difference between 9/7 and 3/4.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (9 x 4), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (3 x 7), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (7 x 4) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (9 x 4) - (3 x 7)/(7 x 4)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (36 - 21)/28
    9/7-3/4 = 15/28
    Hence,
    9/7 minus 3/4 = 15/28
